    Stop lifting for the lower body and eat in a caloric deficit. Pretty simple. However, if you try to shrink your legs, then you better have a very specific reason, or you are pretty dumb in my opinion.

    Run long distances. That should trim them down.

    how big are your quads?

    if thats really what you want to do, I guess doing light weight squats for high reps will help. Also running long distance will do the trick as well.

    Its like saying, I have big arms, i need them smaller for my football season. MAKES NO SENSE! big quads and calves are necessary for track running or cross coutnry, you need strong legs. Unless you are saying you have fat on your legs and calves and you want to burn it off, which i pray is what you really meant. By no means should you ever wish to have smaller muscles, its the opposite of what this forum is about.

    If you want to lose size from your legs without losing strength you merely need to maintain your strength and lose some body fat. You will be surprised how much your quads will shrink if you get lean.

    Reality can be an ugly, and stupid, thing.

    You do not want to lose size on your legs as an athlete; that seems like a really bad idea. Also, your legs are certainly not "big," but they aren't small either. At least it does not appear so proportionally.

    They are not big, you have shape but definitely not huge.

    You just may have skinny Friends.
