Hey, im nearly 42, about 5’8" and 85kg. I was working on improving my bench recently with a goal of 140kg 1RM. I managed 125kg however, 3 weeks ago I fractured my fibula playing cricket at the beach (trying to catch a ball with a 1 hand leap that went terribly wrong).
The fracture is right at the end of the bone and doesnt effect weight bearing, however, as I did grade 3 ligament damage I wear a moon boot for support.
The question now is, what should I do training wise? I can do legs on machines (leg press, extension, curl etc) but due to the shape of the boot I cant really squat, deadlift or do explosive olympic lifts. Nor can I get a decent leg drive on bench.
So what should I do? I dont want to lose too much of my bench gains and I want to minimise atrophy in my legs as much as possible. Any ideas?
