Do you need an exercise routine that takes a load off your feet? If you’re living with a lower-body injury, finding an effective strength and conditioning circuit can be challenging. So many workouts require healthy feet and ankles for support and balance, so it can be tempting to take time off from training until your affliction heals.
But rather than count the minutes until your lower body mends, use this time to improve your single-sided skills, flexibility, range of motion, core strength, and upper-body power. With a little creativity, you can modify most exercises to suit your mobility level without compromising the safety and stability of your hurt foot or ankle.
Before starting new exercises, consult your physician for clearance. This is especially important after injury or surgery.
You will need a set of free weights for this workout. For best results, repeat the entire circuit three times.
Stay strong during an injury and you’ll be sure to land on your feet.
