Thanks, now that I think of it, I got a lot better in the last months, because I practiced a lot.
When you say agile fingers, is it something you develop. I mean of course you don't know all those finger tricks by the first time you pick up a cube, but would it be possible to get your fingers faster. I watch many videos on youtube and even though I'm faster than many people, I find their fingers move faster. I don't know it it's a mental thing, but they always seem faster then me. When you guys started out, did your fingers eventually get faster, I mean making a big difference, or did they just basically stay the same speed?
Your fingers don't get faster... Your fingers just stay there and push.
Like what Ingnorancepersonfied said, practice practice and practice.
and make sure your hands are warm and you are 100% awake before you try to get a good record on the cube...
I'm starting to think about all of this and am finding many different reasons why I'm not turning the cube as fast as others.
1. My cube is not lubed and therefore is harder to turn.
2. My cube ends up having plastic dust on the inside because I play with it so much and that slows it down.
3. After having done the cube about 25 times, my fingers naturally get tired.
I have started seing a big improvement in my finger speed lately. The thing with warming up your hands really works! Besides that, it's pretty funny, but if I leave the dust in my cube, it's pretty hard to turn right. I've done it lately and after looking at my hands, they're huge. I got some pretty big finger muscles and it's a weird muscle to brag about, but it's super cool.
Thanks for all the tips and tricks, and good cubing to everyone!
