I am new to speed cubing and would like to figure out how to get faster at cubing based on my personal stats. Basically, which step should I focus on? Which algorithms should I memorize first? Which principles would be the most useful for me (i.e, look-ahead)? And, any finger-tricks I should know for faster rotation (especially for M/M')?
Target speed: sub-25 to sub-35
Current record: 51 sec
Current average: 1 min 05 sec
Turns per second: 2.2
Cube: Original Rubik's brand
Method: F2L + Beginners method for Yellow and Final
Time breakdown: 5-8 seconds for cross; 30-40 second for F2L; 10-15 seconds for yellow orientation; and 10-15 for finishing the last layer.
Thanks in advance!
