One ofrepparttar main issues isrepparttar 116344 number of turns. Each turn takes time, albeit a very short time because these guys do there turns at a rate faster than 4 turns per second.

Imagine this (sounds like something from The Matrix), you get given a mixed up cube, you look atrepparttar 116345 cube for 30 seconds, you then pickrepparttar 116346 correct set of turns from your memorized list of over 40 sets and use that to completerepparttar 116347 cube. Being blindfolded makes no difference because you are “one withrepparttar 116348 cube”. Reality is being altered.

Ok, come back to reality for a while and say to yourself, what do I want to achieve. Do you want to be able to completerepparttar 116349 cube in 3 minutes, or in 30 seconds.

To be able to solverepparttar 116350 cube in 3 minutes will probably take you about 4 hours to learnrepparttar 116351 moves from a book or a web site, it will then take you a further 4 hours to completerepparttar 116352 cube a number of times, before you can remember it and do it without looking atrepparttar 116353 book orrepparttar 116354 website.

That is if you use a good book or a good web site, don’t waste your time trying to followrepparttar 116355 solution that comes withrepparttar 116356 cube that you bought, that is maybe for Einstein, although I am sure even he would find it a challenge!

If someone can sit with you and show yourepparttar 116357 moves, then it will take you about 1 hour to completerepparttar 116358 cuberepparttar 116359 1st time, and then about 4 hours to get allrepparttar 116360 moves into your head.

However, to be able to solverepparttar 116361 cube in 30 seconds will probably require in excess of 1000 hours of practice, and you will have to remain “fit” by practicing for at least 4 hours a day, to keep your speed up.

Sorepparttar 116362 short way is actuallyrepparttar 116363 long way andrepparttar 116364 long way is actuallyrepparttar 116365 short way. Decide for yourself!
