So, I just broke my foot this past weekend. After talking with the foot specialist yesterday I found out i have 6-8 weeks on being in a boot that totally mobilizes my ankle. I have some super bands so I can do leg extensions, curls, lateral work, etc. Also I can do hip thrust type movements. I can still do most upper body movements, but some I need to modify from standing to seated (Press for example). My question is about my split.
Currently I am using a 4-day Upper / Lower split (up until the injury anyway). Now that all cardio is basically eliminated, and heavy squats and deads are out, what would be a good split to use? I assume my recover capacity will go way up without the heavy movements and cardio (was doing 1 day of intervals, and SS most mornings). I can get to the gym any weekday, and Saturday afternoon (schedule wise).
Does something like Upper Push - Upper Pull - Legs - Upper Push/Pull - Rest - Arms sound reasonable? Any superior suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Would rest days even be needed with my reduced intensity?
Also, any tips on maintaining some sort of conditioning? Maybe EDT style training once or twice a week? Complexes are tough with a bad wheel!
