I thought I would make a progression thread
this will involve 3x3, 2x2 and 4x4

At the moment my best 3x3 single is 13.59 and best Ao5 is around 18 my usual average is around 25
My best 4x4 is about 1.7 mins best average 2.03 and usual average is around 2.10 mins
My best 2x2 is 2.4 which was a lucky solve (6 mover) and my usual average is about 8/9 seconds

also might add other things if I get new cubes

I changed my mind but now I think I am going to just focus on my 3x3 - any tips would be appreciated
I'm going to try to get an Ao12 in every day starting from today
As said my average is definitely sub 30 but probably closer to about sub 25
I regularly get sub 20 solves but not frequently enough to be officially sub 20
I use one of the MonsterGo cubes (magnetic)
I am aiming to get sub 15 soon and possibly not worry to much about any faster than that
I know full PLL and almost all OLL but some isn't really in muscle memory.

I've been trying to do some slower solves and work on trying to use x-crosses when they come around.
However (as you can see above) they haven't majorly improved my times.
I thought if anyone had any good ideas of how to practice more to get to a sub-15 stage that would be great
As already said I know all of PLL and have almost finished OLL (only 2 more to learn properly!)
And as said above I have worked a bit on x-crosses. any other ideas would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks
Splenj

I am also going to do a bit of 4x4 on here as I have just started getting interested in it. I average around 2 minutes but have a PB of around 1:25 and aim to hopefully get sub 1 min any tips would be gratefully recieved.
I also might do a bit of square-1 (got my first one on Friday) I have got a 53 second solve today but average around 1 min so aim to lower it decently
I will do some solves and then do an Ao12 for both of them and add them on here - once again any helpful tips would be great
