I'm a 18-year-old girl, I used to run (usually 1000/2000m competitions) and as a consequence now I'm left with quite big calves compered to the rest of my body. I'd like to know what I could do to reduce their size. I read many articles but I'm not quite sure about what to do since there are different (possibly opposite?) opinions on this subject.
Like, somebody suggested I should use an exercise bike for at least an hour with no resistance (so that the body would start 'consuming' the muscle), whereas others said I have to do high reps sessions of exercises targeting the calves or run (?!) on a treadmill.
Please avoid posting useless comments, I just need instructions and clarifications on how to slim down my muscles. Thanks!
