5b "Helping" Patterns

I've noticed that people like to suggest that you practice certain patterns with 3 or 4 balls that will help you learn 5 ball cascade more quickly. It has been suggested to me to practice the 3b snake, 4b 55550, and 4b 5551 or 55514.

I never quite enjoyed doing these practice patterns for 5b cascade. I simply worked at 5b cascade until I was able to do it.

I like doing these patterns now, after learning 5b cascade. I think it's because I understand the timing of the 5b cascade and I can apply that to the "helping" patterns.

3 ball shower made a big difference for me, especially left handed. And doing 50505 (three up, hand-clap) continuously helped as well.

Especially when you start for 5 clubs, doing smaller numbers really helps.
