How To Exercise With A Broken Foot, From Simone De La Rue (VIDEO)

Celebrity fitness trainer Simone De La Rue advised one of our viewers on how to exercise with a broken foot when she joined me this week on Mondays With Marlo. She suggested standing on one leg and doing quad dips, which will strengthen your quads and help you get around while you're on crutches. You can also get a resistance band to strengthen the tendons and muscles around the foot. While you're immobile, do a mat workout whenever you can and just use your upper body.
