I've got a good Everlast speed rope at home, had it a while but I don't really do skipping now. Everytime I do skipping, the next day I get pains in my shins so when I run it's quite painfull.

I don't have pains in my shins now, but if I was to do a bit of skipping I'd probably get pains. Hope I'm not giving myself shin splints that way. Skipping is an extremly good way of getting fit and shedding the pounds, but it has a lot of impact on the shins and feet.

This is so weird, when I had shin splints it felt as though my shins were getting better.
I guess it just depends on each persons body. Everyone is different.

Skipping is a quick way of getting shin splints, if your getting pains in your shins then stop the exercise, you wont be skipping in recruit training anyway

I do skipping sometimes as a warm down exercise after a run. I havn't picked an injury up yet, Can't grumble!
