That's true I will take pics soon and post those up. I'm wearing super baggy shorts, those are from when I bulked last year around this time, I usually wear fitted stuff. I weighed the most at 201 and now I'm 170. What do you think though now looking at these pics from that angle maybe I will lose some size when I cut? Maybe I just need to tone them but I always stretch when I play soccer? Man I sound like a chick.
Right now to cut I'm taking SX and it's the first day. Wow man I have tons of energy and it basically allows me to cut diet, we shall see at the end of the week.

Ya that's true it looks a little weird. I just got back from work so I put on anything and didn't realize I'd be in the mood to take pics for AM But ok I have to go now, when I come back I'll take pull thigh + calve pics to show the whole thing. Thanks for the time to give advice, appreciate it man.

As for losing muscle in your legs, I can understand where you are coming from (having disproportionate size in my lower to upper body myself), but dieting and doing no exercises for legs is NOT necessarily going to do this.

Well thick calves are genetic, lossing that thick look will be hard for you to do. Some guys just have thick calves.. JUst don't train them, what else could you possibly do..

I didn't have time but when I get back from work I'll try and take a pic that shows my calves and thigh. I know that's proportionate but it's always my calves that are being shown, not thighs but if you guys think they aren't that big then I'm happy. See the only reason I bring this up is that 3 different girls told me this so I took it into consideration.

If you want to get some overall growth in your upper body. Run the starting strength program along with lots of cals.
Everyone has different goals. So do what you want.
No matter how big my legs got, I would not stop training them.
Good luck on whichever you choose.

Ok here is my thigh pic with calves.
It's proportionate in those pics... I know I'll lose some size in my legs as I am cutting now for the summer so maybe I should just drop it. Thanks for everyone's inputs and time, GREATLY appreciated.

Awesome thanks for the feedback. At first I didn't think they were too big but I got those comments at work from 3 girls, one I dated at the time. They said my legs were too big but the only time they saw my legs is when I bulked last year and they got huge. Thanks again guys.

i grew up playing soccer too.. my legs are also much "thicker" than the rest of my body..
The reason I got into bodybuiding was to make myself more proportionate too..
Instead of actually trying to lower my leg mass though, I hit upper body and did some occasional sprints.. I've evened out nicely in the past 2 years.. Also- I never stopped playing soccer so I wouldn't say I've lost any mass in my legs either.

Hey Kris, if I work them out to be honest they get bigger and I can't fit in my fitted jeans. I haven't worked them out for a year, I mean I use them to lift heavy weights, I run etc... If I do leg exercises but light weight, high reps and fast pace they shouldn't get big but toned right? Right now just really focusing on cutting. I'm a natural ecto so it's not that hard to lose weight.

There are some gym rats where I work out that want to do the same thing. Lose leg muscle. I think they want to do it so their legs an fit into a wider range of pants.

I don't want to look to big. I bulked last year up to 200 lbs and hated it. I rather be slim/atheletic any day over body builder look. Some guys love it and I respect that but I don't want to look big.

if you just want to be slim and athletic you could probably just stop lifting weights and cut. Then just lift for maintenance
