    My friend wants to lose muscle mass...as in tone her calves down so she could fit into some boots for the winter...she did some track when she was in HS so she has rather large calves....

    any ideas or methods to do this?

    so she wants to sacrafice her running/jumping ability for small/slimer calves so she can fit her boots?

    big loss imo. but since you cant spot reduce fat, same prob applys to muscle. so diet would be her answer. eat fewer cals than usual.


    or tell her to stroll around in a wheel chair for few days haha. that way her other muscle groups will still be intact

    Eat less calories and less protein. She'll be losing muscle mass all over her body though and not just in the calves.

    She could try going everywhere in a wheel chair and not use her legs at all...after a couple of months the muscles should atrophy quite nicely :mamoru:

    Buy two of those big removable splint things that they give you after they take the cast off a broken foot. Wear them for six to eight weeks and bam, no more calves.

    dude ive never heard of a girl whos calves were too big to fit into a boot. tell her to lose some fucking weight, we got an oinker on our hands. Tell her to put down the bag of chips and step away from the freezer, show some mercy on the ice cream.

    I was low on calories and after wasting 4 hours of my life on a flag football doubleheader, I decided to treat myself w/ that and 2 double cheeseburgers, and topped it off with a McChicken
