Low Stamina

Just bought myself a skipping rope for cardio. Now, after about 60 seconds of skipping i'm extremely hot and can hardly breathe, the fact that I don't have asthma got my curiousity aroused. Could this be down to low stamina?

If so, would the skipping help build up my stamina?
Also, what else could effectively build up my stamina?


Thanks

    I can happily run 10 miles but 2 lengths of swimming and I'm gasping for air. I do a fair bit of hill running so 10 miles on the flat just seems fine. Sort of increasing your endurance by doing something harder than what you actually need to do. Poorly explained sorry.
    What exactly is stamina anyway? Is it a tangible thing, like something which can be measured?

    That makes quite a lot of sense.

    Stamina is the length of time you can go without tiring out, without fatigue.
    Endurance is how long you can go while fatigued.

    Not sure if i explained it correctly...but it's close enough

    Either way, it will improve with time and practice. The principle is the same as for weights: SAID: Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands.

    Nah, I read this in another post....I'll just copy it here


    Endurance:
    The abitlity of a muscle or a group of muslces to continue contracting despite the onset of fatugue.
    Stamina:
    The abitlity for a muscle to contract at a specific intensity without the onset of fatigue

    Surely doing anything will cause fatigue? Your muscles aren't designed to go on forever without fatiguing, unless its cardiac muscle of course.

    yeah, but stamina is how long you can go without your fatigue kicking in.

    Look at Rocky I for example...when he first goes for his jog and he runs up those stairs and he's almost crying because he's so fatigued.

    Then later on in the movie he runs up the steps and dances around a bit because he can do it so easily...

    When he started his stamina was low, towards the end of the film it was high.

    I know it's fictional but the fact remains.

    No, thats improving his endurance, going longer without the onsent of fatigue...I still stand by the fact that they are the same thing.

    Yes
    Yes
    Any form of aerobic activity

    Also, according to http://www.aarogya.com/FamilyHealthLifestyle/fitness/faqs.asp :

    "Endurance refers to the combined continuous effort of lungs and muscles. Whereas stamina is synonymous with aerobic capacity and is related to the capacity of lungs to supply oxygen."
