    Why don't you just do footwork drills or shadowing to improve footwork?

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

    Skipping improves your foot quickness for pushing off the ground. Also, doing double skips and progressing on to triples improves your hang time. When you skip, be sure to touch your heels to the ground every 10 skips to help avoid straining your achilles tendon.

    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.

    tell me about it!
    Only once have I got to 200 before my timing goes and I land on the rope or something.
    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.

    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.

    I think what they mean here is "Double Under" and "Triple Under"

    So instead of having the rope under ur feet only once a jump, but Twice a jump, or mayb even 3 times.
