Define: 'Good Player', because quite a few Masters play under 80 APM.

i could faceroll the keyboard over and over
and get 500 APM that will accomplish Nothing at all
APM means nothing
you should focus more on

EAPM (efficient Actions Per Minute)

also
Learn Multitasking
Learn to scout and read what you scout
Learn to spend money always and keep as low as possible
Learn to not get supply Blocked

learning and mastering all of this are highly more Important than HIGH APM

Technically, the more APM you have, the more ATP your hands use. This results in a buildup of ADP and, is drastic cases, AMP.

So, AMP == APM

Lol, your body doesn't break down ADP ---> AMP. It breaks down ATP ---> ADP then adds another phosphate on and repeats the cycle :P

This is where your wrong, I am a sprinter by nature and ignore the limitations this oxygen dependent metabolic pathway entails and I try to focus on gaining energy from the Lactic Acid Cycle which, while it causes discomfort following rigorous activity, gives me superior strength in the short term due to my inefficient lungs.
