Ankle Problems

I just discovered CrossFit through a friend. It seems like a great program. Problem is I am 7wks Post Op from ankle fusion surgery. With the emphasis on squats (i doubt seriously if I will be able to do them) is there still any way I will be able to follow this program effectively

thanks.

Re: Ankle Problems

Ask your orthopedic surgeon what you can and cannot do.

Hopefully, he treats athletes so he knows that you REALLY want to get back to exercise as opposed to saying just stay away. If so, find an ortho who does treat athletes and can tell you what you can and can't do.

As far as asking I would make a list of exercises (like squats, DL, running, etc.) and ask rather than bring up CF because if they don't know what CF is then you'll have to spend a bunch of time explaining which is just a pain in the butt.
