    I have a minor sprained ankle and was wondering what i should do on leg day. i was figuring if i skipped it just this week and see how it feels next week i should be okay. also, for cardio since i cant run is there anything else i could do? stationary bike maybe?

    I would just rest it. You sense aggravating the injury.

    eat food and rest your leg.. you can do one-legged squats, machine work, etc.. if it hurts, don't do it.

    where are ya liftin' these days?

    pass on the cardio if its painful, some machine leg work if you're up to it - leg extensions and curls.
