Breakthrough

Do you feel stuck with speed?  You’ve been reading along, practicing, and following all these tips, but you feel like your fingers are already moving as fast as they possibly can?  Well, here’s an exercise to help you break through your finger dexterity cap.

Practice bursting short phrases.

Pick a few words you feel comfortable with typing, and practice typing it over and over quickly.

10FF allows you to create your own practice text to type over and over again, and it’ll give you a score based on your speed (and accuracy, of course).

Here are two examples I made that I recommend practicing on.

type something – To focus on bursting long words.  My record is 48 points.

this is how it is – To focus on bursting a bunch of short words.  My record is 61 points.

Get comfortable typing the phrase, keep pushing yourself to get a higher score, and you might be surprised how fast your fingers are able to move.  Don’t forget everything we’ve talked about in previous posts!  All of that will be magnified and super apparent in your burst technique.

Let me know if this helps!
