What would be the best way for me to do the woodpecker method?

ricorat

Hello everyone I was able to find the woodpecker method book and I was wondering what would be the best way for me to do it? I was thinking about solving all of the intermediate puzzles but, wasn’t sure if that was to many for my first go at it?

you'll improve your chess skill quicker

Do that, but if it's too much you should always start with some easier ones, and make your way up.

I might start with the intermediate puzzles first than move on to the advanced ones later on. I’ll have to think about it.

You should probably get the chessable course instead if you haven't already bought the book

The theory of the Method is to use the easiest but go over and over them . Start with 50 then work to 100 over and over. It works. The method, first mentioned in Pump Up Your Rating, does more than train patterns. I found that it increased my speed of analysis with positions I had never seen before. The key is to do it every day and faster than when you started.
