HEELLLLP!!! i need thinner legs!!!

I have a skinny waist and flat tummy but i have HUGE thighs!!!! But they aren't made of fat, they are all muscle and they are big to the point where they are digusting and they have been built up from a few years of sports. I need to know how to burn away the muscle so I can actually wear short skirts and shorts without feeling uncomfortable...somebody please help!!! I would very much appreciate it!! Thanks!

Re: HEELLLLP!!! i need thinner legs!!!

Years a go I had large bulky, muscle legs, because I wasn't informed about lifting heavy weights and bulking!! I thought the heavier the better!! After I created a lot of heavy muscle and became discouraged I stopped going to the gym. My friend and I decided to take up cycling. I bought a bike and took off. Well I went down the street and back the first week or so.

About a month into our training, I was able to ride about 3-5 miles with ease and noticed my legs started to thin. After 3 months of riding an average of 5 days a week (first thing in the morning is great - cooler weather and less traffic), I was able to ride all day (10 - 15 miles) easily and my legs became thin. I lost a lot of weight all over my body (about 40 pounds). During the work week I rode about 5-6 miles first thing (in the beginning it was less than a 1/2 mile). I just told myself that I would ride 30 minutes 3 days a week and an hour 2 days a week. On weekend I would ride for hours and do longer trips (5-8 hours) once I started to enjoy it instead of viewing cycling as exercise.

Once I stopped riding because I moved to an area that is extremely hot year round and it makes it difficult to breath (I'm asthmatic), I slowly gained the weight back (and then some) but my legs never bulked up again. I tried using indoor bikes but it doesn't offer the same affects as the real thing.

I am planning on moving back to my hometown area (within the year) and I will pick up cycling again. It is one of the easiest forms of exercise and you can work at your pace.

I hope this helps you, CC

Re: HEELLLLP!!! i need thinner legs!!!

I'm glad to hear riding a bike helps. I have big thighs, the quads are big but the back is flab and I'd really love to burn it off but I don't want big muscular legs. I ride my bike 30 minutes every morning before breakfast. Do you think this will help me slim down my legs?
