Best Answer

Your muscles are probably out of shape. When you go up hill, the calve muscles tend to flex a little more than just regular walking, you need to stretch and strengthen the muscles.

Muscular calvesUnfortunately this is largely genetic, I have bulky legs too, and I'm a size 4 US. Cardio doesn't help, neither does any exercise I can think of. I've stretched and stretched. Don't notice much difference either. There's surgery in Korea, it cuts out part of the muscles.I noticed that people who've been immobilized usually experience reduction in muscle tissue. Maybe we can sit in a wheelchair for six months.ANSWER:Common reasons for large calves include:Genetic: You may have inherited your calves from your parents.Exercise: Inadvertently exercising in a way that increases the calf muscles.Gait: You may be overusing your calf muscles when walking.Fat Tissue: Rather than having large calf muscles, you may actually have a lot of fat around that area, making them look big and bulky.To slim large calves:Avoid walking on the ball of your foot, keep your heel down.Running for longer distances can slim down calves.Stretching can lengthen muscles and make them look leaner and longer.Pilates can also help elongate legs.Avoid exercises that will build muscle mass in the calves, such as the step machine or walking up steep hills/ high incline on the treadmill.

Very little fatty tissue builds up on your calves; for women, weight typically goes to their hips and thighs, and for men it mainly goes to their bellies.
