    Broken toes and leg day

    So yesterday i broke my pinky toe and the little guy next to it. What are my options on leg day till it heals? Should i just push through and continue doing squats and deads or are their any good alternative exercises i can do until it heals. I just hate to stop squating right now i was doing so good with my routine.

    I think I would simply play it by feel. If an exercise bothered them I wouldn't do it. You may just wind up with extensions and curls for a few weeks.

    I broke a 45lb plate from chest level on the base of toes between the big and 2nd toe and it destroyed me athletically for about 3 weeks. So long as I made every effort to not allow my toes to support any bodyweight, I was still able to train as usual (except for my throwing). It's 4 months later and it's still partially swollen and hurts sometimes, lol..

    FWIW I was doing speed deads with 315 4 days later. Just have to keep the pressure off that part of the foot. Because it's moreso the side of your foot, you might have some problems with that.

    Yeah, what they said. Most of the load should be on the heels anyway but you'd be hard pressed to stay off your toes entirely.

    Jake, that sounds beyond painful.
