Exercise Questions | I want to exercise!!!

I recently moved to Ottawa and promptly got hit by a car while biking home from work. Since then I have had physio but am still in pain and can't seem to do much. How do I stay in shape and exercise without using the injured parts of me? Please tell me what I can do.

Unusable/injured parts: left forearm/wrist/hand, lower back, right foot/ankle.

Any advice/help is much appreciated - thank you!

Try not to get your lower back reinjured.

If there's one exercise we all love to hate and
hate to love, it's this one. A abs workout is
simple, effective bodyweight exercise that
requires no equipment and can be performed
just about anywhere (well, use your judgment).

First off, let's acknowledge a hard truth: Not all
six-packs are created equal. Some guys need to
work their belly to exhaustion before they can
carve out abs, while other dudes seem to get
theirs to pop without a single situp.
Regardless of where you fit on the fitness
spectrum, effectively training the core comes
down to the three planes of motion: frontal,
sagittal, and transverse. Doing abs exercises in a
circuit style keeps the intensity high and will
likely lead to more fat loss.

Whatever you do, don't re injure your lower back!

You're a land mine right now. I wouldn't do much until that lower back gets better. DEFINITELY go stick with the physio as when you say 'lower back' that's pretty much every exercise... You may want to try the pool, but I would ask permission first from your doc/physio.
