A couple months ago i broke my leg and ankle . Ive lost most of my muscle in that leg. Im not able to put any weight on it yet. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on exercises i can do to build my muscles in my leg without putting any weight on it?

i had broken leg once one month later i did swimming and two months after that i did cycling and did it harder and harder cuz that time i had to join bike race then i added up more muscles exercises little by little while i was practicing cycling each day and that's great i was stronger day by day that time.. hope ur better soon :)

Thank you. Wow you recovered really quickly! I still have six weeks to go before i can put any weight on it. Swimming is an awesome idea!Thanks for the tip

I agree with the swimming recommendation. I stretched my ACL, and swimming is good for many movements without placing too much weight on it. You could "google"" for exercises. Good luck.

Be sure to stretch daily and ip possible 2wice a day and elevate it 2 or 3 nights a week when you sleep. Also protein within 30 minutes after your workout always keeps the ache away and build the muscle faster

If you're able to go swimming, I would highly recommend that since it's not only fun and relaxing, which is good for healing, but "low-impact".

Go for swimming and cycling, these are good ways to build muscles.

I'd let it heal and ask the doc, reinjuries are bigger set backs than injuries. good luck!

Thanks for all the amazing feedback. My doctor advised me I cant put any weight on it yet, not even swimming. I find out in a week if i can start. Fingers crossed! If I can I'm defiantly hitting up the swimming pool. I have been just working on mobility for now. Its been three months since i broke it and I'm dying to get rid of these crutches.
