ANNMH185 - Wish I did have more suggestions, but having the foot/ankle injury is just a stinker! I did a lot of weights when my foot was broken. The ergometer was my saving grace --- nice thing is that it not only builds your arms and shoulders, but being aerobic, it will burn calories all over your body.

LMCBUD, I am glad I stopped in to read.

I have been frustrated just doing stretch & tone exercises after my ankle tendon surgery.
With my foot immobilized for another month, the motion of the upper body ergometer is worth a try. Any other suggestions??

Hope the sprain heals quick LIZBIZ!

I know how you feel. I broke a bone in my foot last year and was out for months. I found the upper body ergometer at the gym to do the trick to get my aerobic activity in. That's the wimpy looking "arm bicycle" you see all the older people using.....well let me tell you, that machine will kick your butt! It's now become part of a regular workout routine for me. Give it a try.

I twisted my foot... Which, as a general rule, isn't that uncommon for me. I figure I'll twist something at least once a year, probably more. But it is frustrating that now I can't run.
