    Hi,
    I have been a colemak user for about say 6 years now. My fastest attempt on 10fastfingers has been 101wpm.
    But I keep averaging around 85-95 almost always. While I have no complaints continuing this way I am curious though on how to go beyond probably hit 120-150wpm.
    Is there a particular way of typing to achieve this?
    I currently have my fingers on the home row and palms resting down and use a ortho 40% keyboard.

    TIA

    There are several tips from pros on my BigBag Training page.

    Myself, I'm not fast but my favourite training regimes are Amphetype book-typing for realistic mileage in an interesting way, and Monkeytype 30s or 60s tests using English 1k and punctuation.

    Thanks Abhixec! I couldn't have made that site without the help of my web guru ABrickInTheHallway, aka Marvel95. It's been a fun ride.
