Exercises In A Lower Limb Splint



A couple of years ago I had achilles tendon surgery which put me in a lower limb splint for two weeks. I put together a triathlon specific strength workout that can be completed at home with just a bench and a set of dumbbells. None of the exercises will put any pressure on your foot that could slow the healing.


Sit Ups



Modified Push Ups



Alternate Leg and Arm Raises



Dumbbell Press



Bent-Over Row

May need to modify so both knees are up on the bench if having leg down causes too much pressure



Triceps Dumbbell Extensions



Bicep Curls

These can be done sitting



Dumbbell Lateral Raises

I did these on a flatter incline so I didn't have to support with my legs
