*Mods: Sorry if this doesn't fall exactly into the conditioning catergory.* Hey guys, I'm scheduled to make my MMA debut next Saturday (19th). Today, doing some cardio drills, I sprained the hell out of my ankle. Very swollen and painful. If it still hurts and is swollen and painful on Saturday, do I suck it up and take advantage of the opportunity that lies ahead? I have been training and dieting hardcore for 3 months now. I cut from 180 to 155. I literally put myself through hell and stayed healthy up until now. I am on pace to make weight, even without heavy cardio this week. I am planning on resting it during the day this week, then doing some exersice bike and seated arm workouts in the evenings, then take Friday off completely. The DR. is saying absolutely not, but he doesn't understand what I've put into this. Any advice would be appreciated.
