Try Spark's Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center for some ideas for seated workouts. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/limited-mobil

Take it easy and don't push yourself too hard during these workouts. There's a balance between staying active and keeping a routine of regular exercise, and pushing too hard and derailing your recovery.

Being on crutches is a good sign to sit this one out.

It's OKAY to rest; focus on healing, and getting better, and worry about getting active again after you're not hobbling around on three legs. :)

have you considered upper body strength training while seated? It's not aerobic but at least it's something and most of us could use more work in that area.

I'm not the pro you are asking for but have had an ankle injury. If you can get in water which would mean going to the YMCA that would help a lot.

When exercising you have to just keep moving one foot at a time.

I'm not an expert and don't really have any idea what you could do but I just wanted to say I hope you recover quickly!
