Effective practice

It's consistent, intensely focused, and targets content or weaknesses that lie at the edge of one’s current abilities.

Coordination is built with repetitions, whether correct or incorrect. If you gradually increase the speed of the quality repetitions, you have a better chance of doing them correctly.
