Caslon7000 saidOnce your workouts have gotten your calves larger and harder, has anyone had a problem with sitting in a recliner with them? I am just noticing that my legs are uncomfortable laying on my calves. I have to turn my legs outward or straddle the leg rest altogether. I have thought of putting a pillow under my ankle to elevate my legs, but I figure eventually that will be a pain to keep the pillow in place. Any other solutions?
Actually, I've had the same problem, I don't do recliners any more, I bought a nice futon couch/matress combo, that folds down into a queen sized bed. The nice part is that it's long enough to lounge on. Also a plain old chair and ottoman works well for me too. I still get some discomfort when I lounge and cross my legs at the ankle, but i usually switch out.
the real sign that your calves are "too big' is when you buy jeans based on whether or not you can get your calves in them. Before wide leg jeans my old 38" boot cuts would leave seam marks on my calfs and thighs all summer long (due to 300 mile a week biking habit).
I solved that problem by wearing UtiliKilts.
