A fitness instructor has a far better idea of what she is capable of doing than an average person.
ILLMADEMCGUIRE what did your doctor say about exercise with this injury? Ask your medical professional what is permissable and what will just make it worse.

See the thread under "Fitness and Exercise", "Broken Leg at Strength Class" The fitness instructor broke her fibula above the ankle. Can't put weight on it. Did a full workout anyway, sans lunges, squats, and anything else requiring standing. There is a lot you can do with a bad foot, to work out. Use a chair for upper body workout. See "Deskercise" thread. Get some weights, even if it is Campbell Soup cans at home...

I have a odd situation... I have an injured foot, which i am currently in the process of being medically retired for, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of workouts i can do to help me reach my goals? I am hoping to be well underway on my goals by the time my husband comes home from his deployment right before Christmas. Currently i do TRX FORCE, and some P90X(what doesn't impact my foot to much).
