        Greetings, I used the forum search tool and couldn’t find anything about this topic, so if you know about another post addressing this please link me to it.

        Quick bio: 26 yo male training for BUD/S (bootcamp fortunately isn’t until March). I got a stress fracture in my third metatarsal on the right foot. I am in a boot.

        My question is, what can I do in the gym in terms of my feet? It would seem that for instance deadlifting, back/front squatting, and any jumping are definitely out, but what about kettlebell swings or rowing? I know I have to stay off of it and will do so, but any advice on where the line might be between okay and not okay exercises would be great.

        Thanks everyone!

          You need to listen to the parameters you were given about what you are able to do.

            Did you ever find more advice on what you should do about this?  I’m in a boot right now for a fractured 2nd metatarsal.  What were you able to do and find out is safe to do during this injury?
