    I think those could mess with your coordination once you stopped practicing with them.

    I think the best way to is challenge yourself with your playing. Try a fast line that is fairly difficult and play it as long as possible, after a week I bet you will be able to play that line longer. This will help your endurance.

    One line I would suggest is Peace Sells by Megadeth, fairly fast and it uses all four fingers throughout the riff. Another good one is My Generation by the Who.
