here is a video of me solving in 35.97 seconds, i know it should have been faster, that PLL was horrendous i know

i am looking advice from you guys so please be harsh:
things i need to improve:
learn OLL and PLL
turn more fluently
spot F2L pairs quicker

anything else?

You shoudn't go so fast, at least in the beginnin.

You move the cube very well! Keep it hard!

Nice solve, u could also try to do more single face turns instead of full-cube turns.

I must agree Slow Down and along those same lines Look ahead. If you can see where the next one CE pair is (or at least one of them) you won't have to turn the cube as much.

Also, some of those algs look slightly awkward in your hands. Look around the multitude of solving sites around to find some algs that fit your hands better.

this what I did. do th cube REALLY slow and plan everything out. do this about 10 times and then start to go faster and faster. this should help you recognize and react to what algs you need to use. the other key to speed is reducing your moves. I used to do the standered layer by layer method. when I did, I would use over 100 moves. now I use the petrus method. I now use only 40 or 50 moves. My record is 19.17 and my average is around 26 or so. Also in the video it doesn't look like you examine it very much. I take 15 seconds to plan the first step and find where all the peices will be.
