    damn i wish i had that problem

  4. because it doesn't look congruent to my body. Big legs looks retarded unless you want to impress guys but who wants that? I notice that kind of response from a lot of people but that's because they don't have that kind of mass but since this is a body building forum that's the goal right?

    I was guessing it's no leg workouts(I haven't worked out my legs in a year) and slow running cardio and low calories? I'd obviously be doing upper body workout to maintain the top. Any experts here?

  5. So your not trying for a big physique right? you just want to be athletic then ya just lay off the leg workouts theres not much else you can do.

  6. Well my physique is congruent now but my legs are still a tad bigger than I want them so I don't know any other way except not working them out but I tried that and they wont get smaller so I figured the only other thing possible is maybe go for long slow jogs which I read in another thread.

    It's weird I never thought I'd ask to lose muscle all these years later.

  7. Best way to lose leg muscle is to join a fraternity.

  8. start running and cycling. Burn it off

    from the degenerative diseases from nailing skanks and farm animals without discretion?

    or from standing for hours on end participating in circle jerks?

    From curling all day and nothing else.

    ah, also a valid reason.

  12. Hmm, but even the pros dont really have huge legs? How disproportionate could you be?

  13. Well I have soccer legs and for a long time my legs were bigger than my upper body(I have an ecto body) so only now do I sort of have a proportionate body.

    But I wanted to know because I read somewhere that slow running can decrease the size along with low calories. Is it long distance running(like marathons) or can I just use an elliptic machine?

    Thanks for the inputs, appreciate it.

  14. get some pics up
    “We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

  15. Just take a butcher's knife. Slice it open and remove. No pain no problem. No but seriously, don't work them out? You'll eventually lose the muscle or it won't be as big. But I really don't get why you'd want to lose something you worked for.

  16. Start running marathons and you'll stay in shape and drop the size of your legs. Slow, long distant running won't drop leg muscle. Stopping all cardio for the sake of making your legs smaller isn't the healthiest way but would work over time. Lowering calories could work or you could cause a loss in muscle in other areas.

  17. Are you Asian? Asian people tend to have bigger calves. I'm Chinese myself and I don't even work out my legs. My calves are freaken huge though, but I have a small peenor.

    lucky bastage

    I want my legs to be awkwardly bigger........You want yours smaller.

    Trade?

  19. Thanks for everyone's input, I really appreciate it!

  20. If being disproportionate is your problem, why not try to build some more muscle on your upper body? Or are you trying to be really small period? Just curious.

    WhAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? ?????????????????????????

  22. It's going to take time. I am/was in the same boat as you and, in retrospect, there really is not a reason to do this unless there is some sort of athletic application. I encountered many more leg/core injuries from not training them and also lost a lot of flexibility in the area. I train my legs in a diminished capacity now and have added some size back, but nothing that is a real hindrance.
    M.Ed. Ex Phys


  23. To Answer Buuzer I want to reduce the size in my legs. My upper body looks good, not too big. My legs though are a little bigger than I want them so IO just want to reduce the size in my legs. I also found that I need to start lifting weights while sitting(shrugs, biceps) because I find when I am standing I am using leg muscle to lift some weights so I think that is my problem.

    For rodja it's more the look(proportionate) than for athletic. I'm going to be cutting soon so maybe the size will decrease then. It's really for myself and no one else, I actually couldn't give a damn what people think of me but I do find my legs just a tad bigger than they should be. When i cut I will just maintain the upper body and no legs.

  24. We need pictures. (no homo) I think that will give us a better idea of what your dealing with.

    i second that.

  26. Alright I'll take a picture soon and post it.

  27. This thread is asinine!

  28. What? I'd take that muscle if I could!

    Like some people stated, I too wish I had this problem.

  29. Ok I posted some pics up on photobucket. I suck at taking pictures so it was a little hard. I'm not flexing, the only time is with my calve, it was even hard taking that pic. You'll have an upper body and then calves. I am cutting now as you can see from my waist and summer is not here yet so I wont wax until then .














  30. Although for some reason the pics makes my legs look smaller. When I look in the mirror they are a little bigger.
