Firstly, consult your doctor or physio who is treating your broken foot for all suggestions given and check what is allowed for *you* personally, with your specific injury.

But basically, any non-load-bearing exercise. So if you are allowed to swim or bike they may be good for you, otherwise as suggested look up "chair exercises".

If you haven't been there already, you should check out fitnessblender.com. They have tons of different workout videos with descriptions of what is done in them, and you might find something that you can still do. :) I use them all the time, especially when I am sore from my last workout and want to avoid a particular body part lol

I recently broke my foot and find it very difficult to do anything at all. I am usually a very active person and I love to run, so this sitting all day is getting pretty old. Does anyone have any advice in regard to staying fit while being restricted.
