Hello all. To make a long story short, I broke my fibula and tore up my ankle pretty good. The doctors put a metal pin through my ankle and six weeks later, I’m finally getting it out next Monday.
So, my question to you all, would it be a good idea to squat and deadlift the week after I get the pin taken out? Would box squatting be my best bet?
The ortho said I would be able to walk on it and put full pressure on it about a week after the pin is removed. Then, after the surgery, I start PT to get the strength back.
Another problem is my shrunken leg. My lower leg is tiny compared to my quad and ham. I’ve heard that this can cause an imbalance in the erectors and all the way up to the traps. What can I do to avoid this as much as possible?
The last problem I have is my dynamic warm ups. I really like box jumps but I don’t think that I would be able to do much jumping until my ankle is a lot stronger. If anybody has any ideas as to what I could do, feel free to chime in. Thanks in advance.
