    Does anyone know of any exercises which are good for slimming calves?

    I can find loads for making them more muscly but mine are HUGE and need reducing.

    I have a few pairs of trousers I can't wear because of them. They fit by belly & hips (which is no mean feat) but not my calves.

    TIA x

    all i know is to keep up with the diet and go up on your tip toes on the spot like your reaching up high.other than that its lots of cardio especially on the cross trainer. that should hopefully help slim your calves right down x

    i did fitness training 3 years ago and went to the gym every day. i lost 3 stone in a year through diet and exercise and myself to had quite big calves but because i lost weight and exercised my legs lost weight and my calves were much smaller. it all depends on what exercise you do!
