    As I stated in a recent post, I sprained my ankle pretty badly playing basketball. Anyways, it is finally feeling somewhat normal, however, today i tried to jog VERY VERY slowly and i felt pressure/a slight pain. I have been doing the leg curl machine and hamstring machine but i am afraid to do squats, leg press, calves just yet. I know that the sprain is not fully healed and definitely don't want to reinjure it.

    Should I Just keep doing leg curls and hamstring curls only until my ankle is 100%, not 85 or 90%. Obviously if I cant run at an extremely slow pace, it's still not right.

    Should I wait it out a 2-3 more wks.?

    Wait.

    I tweaked my back about 10 days ago. It's killing me to stay away from the gym, but it's for the best.
