None to decrease: 'bowlegs' or genu varus is common and generally inherited. You can do any exercises u like but there are no specific exercises to decrease the bowleg alignment of your legs.Some of the best athletes have " bowlegs"....! osteotomies can ' straighten ' your limb alignment but would not be recommended . Best of luck.
