I got my first one handed video up. I did it in about 58 seconds which is decently fast for me.

Any tips?

I don't know why it's so dark.

You should check out speedcubing.com and go to chris hardwicks corner. He has tips for one handed solving on there

I notice you're using your right hand. Have you tried it with your left? I use my left (even though I'm right handed) because it's easier to do R moves with your left hand. I know that some of the top OH cubers use their right hand and some use your left - but you should at least try both.

Anyway, now that you're sub-1, you're going to want to work on finger exercises. You'll want to strengthen the fingers of your hand so that you can make lots of turns quickly without getting too tired. You already have the dexterity and the lookahead; you just need the insane speed and you'll be set.

Oh yeah, and practice specific algorithms with one hand. That should make you two or three seconds faster...

Yeah OLLs are easy but I need to practice PLL the other day I did a 2x2x2 in my left hand and a 3x3x3 in my right.
