My maintrack average is roughly 150WPM, I ghost a lot of quotes to get top 10 placement on them so my average may seem a bit inflated from time to time.

X-Bows is an Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard, buy it.

> Use homerow, keyboard were built for that hand placement. Use typing.com to learn proper finger placement.

> Memorize the keyboard layout. You have to be able to type without looking at the keyboard, that is essential. This comes with practice, so keep grinding away and your muscle memory will accommodate your keyboard and layout. Again, I recommend typing.com for learning proper homerow. My average has jumped from 120WPM to 150WPM by re-teaching myself how to type properly.

> Play other games so you don't get bored. I highly recommend Town of Salem, a free detective style web game that mainly takes place in text chat. Being able to type out your thoughts faster is a huge advantage.

> Get a "good" keyboard. You can use membrane, laptop, mechanical, what matters if that the quality isn't crap like what you use at school. You can go fast on membrane, laptop, or mechanical, what matters is that you actively use the keyboard and become used to the feel of navigating it. Shop around, maybe go to in person stores to get a feel for what you'd like. I use the cheapest mechanical keyboard on Amazon so it's not like I have good gear, yet I am one of the fastest typers on this website. I can pull out the same speeds on a Dell Laptop as shown in my videos as well.

> ALWAYS warm up in practice mode before going onto the maintrack. Don't tank your average by going in cold.

> Don't force yourself to play typeracer if you aren't in the mood, are becoming slower in your sessions, have a headache, are hungry, etc. Quality over quantity.

> Do not neglect your body. Are you sitting up straight? I personally type fastest when I'm leaning back in my chair. Experiment with what you have, find the best posture, chair setting, way in which you angle your arms, that's personal to you.

> Going on with your body ... eat well. Getting 7 or more hours of sleep (as everyone should) is the biggest notable boost to my typing speed. People these days are so sleep deprived it's not funny, please get good rest!

> Caffeine ... though don't use it as a substitute for sleep :)
