About two and a half years ago, I snapped the neck of my femur in half. I had to get surgery done and got a plate and two big bolts put in there to hold everything together.

Tomorrow I'm going in to get the hardware taken out, and although this surgery is much simpler than the original, I will be on crutches for a short time (the doctor said I should be able to walk right after the surgery, but wants me on crutches just to be safe), and will have to keep heavy weight off my leg for a little bit after that.

I've been doing Crossfit for a little over a month now, and I love it! I want to keep doing it, but obviously I won't be able to follow any WOD's that include squats, cleans, jerks, etc. So I was wondering if anyone had any advice on putting together a workout that will keep me going. I have access to a pool (and the doctor said swimming would be fine), so I can use that to do things that will keep my leg strength up.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any input. Thanks a lot!
