LOL! I want less muscle on my legs! Well not really, but they could definitely be smaller.
Squats are great and lots of them. I do squats at the same time as overhead presses and arm curls. I do 20 each time 3 sets of those which is 120 in all. Also squat pulses are great, which is where you get into a squat position but just pulse 20 seconds. Release, rest 10 seconds and go again. Do this 6 times.
I love running up and own the stairs 3 minutes at a time, again 3 sets.
Wall sits for 2-3 minutes are great.
For calves, I love to come up on my toes, hold while doing a bicep curl with weights, release the curl and then release the calves. This works on balance which doubly works the calf.
Lunges are great and I tend to work the shoulders at the same time doing a lateral raise.
Here's a workout sample: (Alternate between the two, so squat/overhead first alternated with lunge/lateral raise)
Squat and over head press, 20 reps 3 sets
Lunge and lateral raise, 20 reps 3 sets
Squat and trep dip (over the back of the head), 20 reps 3 sets
Calf raise bicep curl, 20 reps 3 sets
Stairs 3 minutes alternated with wall sits 3 minutes, 3 sets
