when running with a sprained ankle
MsE this may be long overdue, but you probably want to start at 70-75% body weight when you first start using the Alter G and slowly work your way up in percentage. If it is just a sprained ankle, I'd say keep it light while the swelling is bad. I usually start around 70% bw and work my way up a little bit each run on the Alter G. My rule of thumb is about 15% increase each week. Works for any similar injury. Even a 10% decrease of body weight can make a big difference when you are doing intense workouts. Hope this helps!
