repetition is key. whether you're reading an endgame book , studying an endgame study, or just playing an endgame, you need to practice doing it more than once! Once you remember basic concepts, you can apply them in a real game

I do ~2 hours, it's all my schedule permits. I think 1 hour a day is necessary if you want to improve at a decent/average rate
