hey man, this sucks, im actually just getting back into it after breaking 5 bones across my foot while climbing in march. the healing time goes by pretty quickly actually, it doesnt seem like its been 3 months.

heres what i did.

1. Hangboard: dont over do it, but doing hangboarding exercises helped me feel like my arms weren't atrophying away.

2. weight workouts: just because you are 1 foot down doesnt mean you cant do some upper body stuff. people give you weird looks in the gym but who cares, you're picking up heavy shit

3. start climbing as soon as you can: as soon as your doctor says your foot can take alot of bumping and bashing climb. i climbed in the orthopedic boot for about a month before my physical therapist said it was ok to climb in shoes. again people at the gym will get a kick out of it. the trick is to climb harder then them in the boot.

thats what i did, still some stiffness in the morning but its pretty much back to normal. now if i can only get my toenail to finish growing back ill be set.

good luck

note: attached are the xrays from my foot. hope you didnt break the big bone, thats the one that sucks the most
