3. Stop working that muscle.

Now we’re getting closer. I already use this strategy with my calves. What? I love my calves exactly the way they are and toe raises are tedious. The difference between calves and lats however is that the latter is connected to other very important muscles like, oh, your whole upper body. Kinda out, for reasons of practicality.

  1. Pilates. Pilates. Pilates. It will stretch those muscles out-long and lean. More dancer-like, as opposed to the bulkier, thick look.

      Yes, I was reading and my mind kept going, “Sounds like more stretching is in order”. Hoping to get a job real soon, so that I can give pilates a try.

  2. I did a double take at the article title. Then I dropped a few choice four-letter words. WHY would one WANT to lose muscle? I mentally shouted–and then looked at my arms like I was worried the muscle would fly off or something. I’m glad to see that your reason is relatively sane but it’s definitely not for me. I’m built like a rail. My limbs would be twigs if I didn’t work on building muscle. NOT a good look on me.

    If it were me–it’d be alteration time.

  3. How about just be happy your muscular? Make the last do what they’re supposed to do…pull ups! strong is the new skinny. Embrace that ISH!
