Hey Nation, I recently fractured my fibula, so thankfully it’s not a major injury. That being said, I can’t bear much weight with it until it’s healed.
I feel that leg and most of the worthwhile exercises (deadlift, squat, cleans, overhead press, etc) are not feasible due to the fact that I can’t bear weight on my right ankle.
Can anyone suggest to me some exercises that will help me stay in shape while I’m on crutches and unable to do my staple exercises? Don’t be afraid to suggest leg exercises that are plausible with a walking boot ( http://orthopedics.about.com/b/2008/01/26/walking-boots.htm )
I’d like to stay away from dips seeing as that’s basically what I do all day by supporting my weight (plus my backpack - usually filled all the way with books) on crutches. Other than that, I’m open to any suggestions and they are much appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
