I have been experimenting with moving focus around but after finally "mastering" (term used loosely) back button focus, I find it takes too much time to use the same thumb which moves focus bracket around to then use it for focusing and then index finger for engaging VR and shooting picture.

Do most shooters who move focus around as opposed to focus and recompose use back button focus or do they used standard shutter release for focusing?
I feel like after coming along way with back focus and improving my speed I am going backwards with focus selection. Should I just keep practicing and suck it up or go back to shutter release for focus?
