Long story short - playing softball Friday night as catcher, tried to block plate on guy coming home, his head hit my right leg and fractured my fibula. It’s a clean break but the bone did not shift out of position. I have a splint now and will try to get an appt tomorrow to get a cast. I was told to stay off the leg for 6 weeks.
I will talk to the ortho about how soon I can deadlift & squat again. I know I can still do upper body workouts but will have to do them all seated (except for chinups – I think I can figure out a way to get up/down w/o using my broken leg).
I’m mainly concerned about what to do with my lower body. Should I work my 1 good leg? Do things like hamstring curls & light leg presses?
I did Cressey’s Max Strength program in the spring and got quite a bit of single leg work such as 1 legged squats. That should come in handy regarding general mobility. I wonder if I should go back to those exercises.
