It will sound silly, but the best advice I can give is: just keep practicing and adding another card. There's no real secret. You just keep doing it until your hand adapts to more and more cards.

Right on the button. Many years ago I was able to bp half a Bike deck with gloves on, and produce a string of huge fans and then a string of singles. My secret? Sit on the bed or the sofa (more comfortable than sitting on the floor Smile ), and put something on the TV that will take your mind off the drudgery. Then just keep doing it over and over; your bp'ing muscles will get stronger as you go.

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.
That's our departed buddy Burt, aka The Great Burtini, doing his famous Cups and Mice routine

George,

What excellent, excellent advice. I learned Thurston's Five Card Routine and the interlaced production on my back while my family watched TV. Keep in mind that was learning the mechanics of the sleights. I had to get off my lazy butt to block the routines.
