Skipping is only a part of a holistic training program for the hardcore badders.

if i am not mistaken, skipping does some work for the cardio..so it will improve stamina too.

yup. as well as wrist strength and agility.
try to see if you can do up to 500 or even 1000. it is not easy.

I say rope, but I actually use clothes line. The plastic coated metal wire type.

Skipping makes you lighter on your feet so quicker around the court. And also it builds up your wrist strength. The far easterns do around 100 triples before a match for a warm up. I would never be able to do that, its unbelievable.

Can you explain about Footwork drill and shadowing? how to do it?
SKIP FOR 500-1000??????????? don't you feel tired? especially when you have a match?
about skipping, Usually how long it take us to see the improvement? a month?

The best rope to use is the cheap rubber ones, with the length from the ground up to your chest or neck when folded over.
Once you get used to it, the timing is instinctive and you'll forget about it, and 500-1000 skips won't seem that much anymore.
Some variations is to skip on one leg only and switch back and forth every ten skips. Another one (which takes some time to learn) is the running skip, where it looks like you run on the spot but you're skipping. I found this one hard to coordinate at first, the easiest thing to do is start out slow, and work your way faster. When doing normal 2-footed skips, try doing a double-skip every ten skips.

Uh, sorry to ask this. But what is a double skip or a triple skip?
