I started learning roux on 22th august 202 and a few days ago i got a 15.56 single and 23.5 seconds average.

Is this a good progression?

It's pretty good, and also don't ask this kind of questions, because people progress and learn at their own pace so maybe someone that improves slower, could get demotivated by seeing your progress or you getting demotivated for hearing someone improve faster than you. So, just practice at your own pace, and take things easy. :D

Yeh, I like to see how fast you're improving, even though I avg 26 w/ CFOP after 3 1/2 years of cubing. Lucky though, I figured out why (it's because I didn't practice enough). Plus it's nice to see another Roux user on the forums.

I think so, I started at exactly that same time (a coincidence) and my PB is only 18.54, with ao100:25.82. Which cube do you use???
I still use Rubik's brand, so I'm proud nonetheless.

I HIGHLY recommend switching from your Rubiks brand over to a good budget cube such as the rs3m2020, it will definitely help your improvent

For me, it took 2 years. I took many breaks and didn't have much motivation for cubing, though. I found out about competitions in 2018 so that's when I started getting faster because I wanted to do good in them.

Hi, i've been wondering, am i fast as a 12 years old, i just turned 12

or is cubing timings not relatable to age

Time Line:
10.8 Years Old: (Sub 50)
11.0 Years Old: (Sub 45)
11.4 Years Old: (Sub 35)
11.7 Years Old: (Sub 24)
11.8 Years Old: (Sub 23)

Ruihang Xu, the former 3x3 world record (5.48 ao5) holder is 12 years old.

Cubing doesn't necessarily scale with age as much as other physical sports like running or swimming, so don't worry about comparing yourself to others. Getting to ~20 seconds after about a year of cubing is a pretty typical progression; you seem to be on a good pace!

I couldn’t say. I started an actual interest in the Rubik’s cube at 13.14159265348979… years old.
To be honest, I believe cubing has nothing to do with age. I watched one video in particular on Brodys channel about an 8-9 year kid that could solve a 3x3 under 8 seconds.
watched that too

I won't say you are fast, but your progress is good.

Keep cubing!
