    Working out Legs w/injury

    Recently sprained my ankle and will not be able to put heavy weight on it for likely 2-4 weeks.
    Given the numerous benefits and importance of squats and deadlifts, what’s my best move?
    Currently cutting on fierce 5 novice routine, and only doing leg extensions and leg curls for legs on their respective days.
    My concern is losing size, gains, strength in the legs and losing general muscle on this cut given the importance of heavy leg lifting for the rest of my lifts and muscle development.
    Anything to be concerned about? Should I just stick with the leg curls and extensions till the ankle is good or is there a better approach?

    Definitely let it heal before subjecting it to any appreciable loading. You'll just end up injured for longer by rushing things. It's way harder to lose muscle than it is to build it. Get whatever stimulus you can out of single joint exercises until you can load it again. You'll be fine.
