Some people love their legs and love to show them off. Some people, however, are self-conscious about their legs because they feel that their calf muscles are completely out of proportion to the rest of their body. People try all kinds of things to make their calves appear smaller and more proportionate. The good news is that there are ways to reduce the size of your calves. In this article we will cover some of the more popular options.
Jogging can reduce the size of your calf muscles. What you want to do is jog at a slower pace (around 5 miles per hour or whatever you are comfortable with). You can jog at your local gym, around your neighborhood, at home on a treadmill or you can even jog in place.
Jogging or endurance running is great and helps slim down the calf muscles in your legs because it reduces the amount of fatty tissue surrounding the calf muscle. This type of running also helps reduce the muscle mass in your legs.
What you don’t want to do is jog uphill. This is too much resistance and can cause your leg muscles to get bigger.
You’ll want to jog at least 3 to 5 times per week for at least 30 mintues at a time. You don’t want to run at a faster pace either becuase this builds leg muscles. Jogging at a slower pace helps burn fat and that can reduce the size of your legs.
Once again, you want to run on flat surfaces. Don’t run on any surface that has an incline. If you run outside try not to run on any dirt paths as they tend to incline and decline. Keep the treadmill flat.
A great way to stretch the calf muscles out and make them slammer is with Pilates. Stretching with Pilates or Yoga works because it elongates the muscles instead of bulking them up. This elongation makes your calves smaller.
