    Learn to speed stack there are 3 events in it just try the most famous one the cycle where you go from stacking a tower of 3 6 and 3 to a tower of 6 and 6 to a 1 10 and a 1 to return back to the start of a 3 6 and 3 i reccomend trying to go for a sub 10 second i recomend using any speed stacks they all work fine you dont need pro series for this a speed stacking timer and a mat for it so the cups dont slip and so the timer can be attached to something

    Just why? This isn't any trick. This is just a waste of paper and money. Buy a phonebook just to rip it whole in half and throw it into trash. And why the heck did you rip that book? You could read it and get lots of values from it, but no. Rip it in half.
