First, you need to check with your doctor. Nasty sprains take a LONG time to heal... as in months, not weeks. Without that clearance to resume weight-bearing exercise, you shouldn't be doing so. Want to know what happens if you don't?
You get me. I lost my insurance after my nasty sprain, so I got no follow up care or advice. Now, three years later, my ankle swells randomly, I have re-sprained it twice, and I have to baby the thing or I hurt myself.
I would not do ANY weight bearing exercise until your doctor has cleared you, and then ask for a referral to a physical therapist for appropriate exercises to rebuild the strength in your ankle.
