- use your wrist instead of moving your fingers

- always remember it aint vibro until like 250bpm+

- less moving wrist + pressing key for less time = faster

- for max speed use finger movement and wrist movement

I suggest keeping your wrist super light and relaxed and not tensed.. try to shake your hand up and down with a tense wrist vs with a relaxed one and youll see what i mean

one of the most eye opening things that took me forever to figure out over years of assuming how people "wrist jacked" was that you actually have to "lift" you're hands as much as you press them down, aka alternate two muscle sets in both arms.

integrating other motions like you're fingers arms/shoulders can be helpful too but the more complex you're tech is the greater the focus and control you need will be O:

If you put your thumb on your index finger and curl your fingers, the added support of your thumb may help increase consistency and stamina and maybe speed especially on long jacks
