I don't think I have ever seen more accomplished in 3 side turns. Complete a block and do CMLL and do EO at the same time. I wish I could accomplish something like that.

I wish I was good enough to jump into LSE halfway through the 2nd block.

As you will note below, it takes me as long to do 2 blocks as it takes you to do the whole thing.

Did you cut and paste those moves? It doesn't complete for me after I delete the stuff including and after "J perm".

F2B works, but the corners are messed up after the next line so it looks like there is something wrong with the line starting with "U F R' F' R".

I’ve only been doing Roux seriously for about 2 days- can I have help with some efficient tricks?
Here’s what I’d do in a solve:

z2 x
u2 U’ M’ U’ M U’ // First Block
x’ r’ U M’ U’ r’ U’ R U2 R U r’ U’ R // Second Square
R U2 M2 U’ R’ U’ r U r’ // Second Pair
U2 R’ U’ R U’ R’ U2 R // CMLL
U M U’ M’ M’ U2 M’ U M2 U2 M’ U2 M // LSE

Different solution with same scramble-
x’
r’ U’ M’ U M U’ l’ U’ l y // First Block
R’ U R2 U’ R U R’ // Second Square
U R’ U’ R U M’ U2 R’ U R // Second Pair
U R U2 R’ U’ R U R’ U2 R’ F R F’ // CMLL
M2 U M U2 M’ U M’ U2 M2 U’ M U2 M’ U’ // LSE

Next Scramble: F R B2 L2 F2 R2 U2 F2 U' R2 D L2 U L2 R' F' D2 B R' B2 F2

29 STM (1 move cancelled):
E r' B //2 Pairs FB (3/3)
U2 r' E' //FS+Pair SB (3/6)
F' R' F //FB+SS (3/9)
M R U R' //SB (4/13)
M' U //setup OLLCP (2/15)
r' U' R U' R' U2 r //CMLL+EO (7/22)
M U2 M U //LR (4-1/25)
D2 M' D2 M' //EP (4/29)

another CMLL - 27 STM (3 moves cancelled):
M R U R' //SB (4-2/10)
R U R2 F R F2 U F //CMLL (8-1/18)
U' M //EO (2/20)
U M2 //BF (2/22)

Here’s another example of what I’d do:
y2 z’
B R’ E’ y U R u’ // First Block
U2 M2 R’ U R U f’ U f // Second Square
M’ U M R U R’ // Second Pair
U2 L’ U2 L U2 L F’ L’ F // CMLL
M’ U M U’ M2 U2 M’ U’ M’ u2 M’ u2 U // LSE
Any tricks I’m missing?
More solutions with the same scramble-
x
U2 R2 y M u’ R U R u2 // First Block
R U M’ U’ r U r’ U’ r U S’ U2 S // Second Block
....
