Yes, partial weight bearing modes of exercise would probably be best. You can still do some strength lifts for upper body, and dead lifts which don’t require much ankle mobility. For rehab do your dorsi flexion mobility,and easy band strength. Now’s a good time to work on open chain hip strength. Best of luck moving forward!
I sprained my ankle while trail running downhill about a week ago. Looks like it might take a while to fully recover. I started with some easy rehab exercises.
Now I am wondering what’s the best way to keep doing aerobic workouts while my ankle is still recovering. Runnning and in particular trail running is probably not the best thing to start too soon. I assume biking and skitouring and hiking are probably the best ways as the boots give some ankle support?
Also, I was entering week 16 of my trail running training plan and am wondering how to continue with that.
I don’t have any races coming up at this point and was planning to transition into an alpine climbing training plan after that.
I guess the best way going forward would be to stop the trail running training and do aerobic and strength exercises at a level my ankle tolerates and then start a transition period into alpine climbing training once my ankle is fully recovered?
