Yael, a belt squat is a variation on squatting often used for athletes recovering from lower back injuries, but I expect you'd like it to, since you won't have to support the bar with your hands.
They're done in the same way as a weighted dip or pullup, with a chain through weight and around your waist. In order to get a good range of motion you'll probably want to suspend the weight between two plyo-boxes or the like (you'll stand on them). Does this make sense?

Balance on each leg in various configurations for time - deceptively simple, until chaos theory strikes and your balance suddenly goes down the tubes...

Here's a diagram: (I don't know if this will help :lol:)

You stand on the two boxes, belt around your waist, looped through a weight 'X', which hangs in the space between the two boxes.

I'm sorry, this is a pitiful attempt at an explanation.

Thanks!!

Hopefully it'll be better before I complete all of these WODs. I keep thinking it's better and then it starts hurting again.

You could do 1 armed swings, unless both of your elbows and wrists are messed up.

chain your leg to a Kettlebell and do 400m sprints. Pretend you're married trying to escape.

For time, of course. :-)

Hope your elbow gets better soon.

So you're a bodybuilder now? :yikes: I don't think a couple of workouts would make much of a difference....
