Crossfit severly limited by injury

I broke my foot about 6 months ago. Having serious healing issues, doc told me "if you're going to work out, it better be sitting down; or I'll put you in a non-weight bearing cast and on crutches". Now I'm trying to figure out what exercises I can do sitting, or at least that don't involve having my feet on the ground.

Seated Press
Bench
Pull-Ups
Dips
Back extension (non-ghd, he specified)

I'm also about to try seated kettlebell cleans. I'm not allowed to do sit ups or push ups. Anyone thing of anything else.

Re: Crossfit severly limited by injury

Ring rows with your legs supported.

Lots of ring exercises, though you'll need to be careful about support for your feet, support on the dismount, etc.

L-Sits/Tuck-sits

Handstand progressions, again being careful about your feet on the dismount.

Get well soon!

Ummm.. if it's taking six months for the bone to heal, you probably SHOULD be in a cast!

Yeah, I probably should be, but could you imagine the smell of a cast on a foot in SE Georgia?
