Hand / finger speed

well, i havent practiced roll speed and endurance lately and when i sat on my pad yesterday i noticed that both my singles and doubles are bout 10bpm slower than they used to be 2 months ago so curently it is 140-singles and 200 doubles (but i have to warm up a lot before goin to 200) for 1 bar of 4/4.
i use mainly fingers on singles,and wrists and elbows on doubles.....so...any ideas about improvig hand speed and endurance?

[QUOTE] and wrists and elbows on doubles
I use only two fingers for the doubles and I can do them at about 250bpm, steady (that's the farest my metronome goes, so I don't know how much faster I can go)
So I suggest putting less effort in doubles.
For the improving of your speed and endurance => exercise! alot!

Try working from a book like Joe Morello's Master Studies, there's plenty of material in there which should take your mind off how fast you are playing, ultimately concentrate on acccuracy rather than speed as the by-product of accuracy will be speed and control.

practise the stone killer in the book master studies by joe morello everyday. it's an exercise for building speed and endurance on your singles
