I am sick of girls who set a “thigh gap” as a weight loss goal. You cannot achieve this (without looking sickly thin) unless you have the right body structure! A “thigh gap” does not measure how fit or skinny you are. Some of the most althetic skinny girls in my school do not have the imfamous thigh gap, simply because of bone structure. You must have wide set hips to get a thigh gap and still be healthy, and for girls with narrow hips, it might just not be acheivable. This doesn’t mean you failed or anything, there is nothing wrong with having thighs that touch! I’m sorry, I’m just sick of all this, you can get your body in the best shape it can be, but you cannot change your bone structure, so stop setting unrealistic goals for youself and just be the healthiest ‘you’ you can be! :)
to answer your question:
- put a small exercise ball (or really anything with resistance, like maybe a firm pillow or something) between my thighs (middle thigh area) and squeeze. I either squeeze and hold for like a count of 30, release and repeat OR just squeeze, release, squeeze, release etc. You’ll feel the burn!
- side lunges
- inside out leg lifts. Lie on your side, lift the leg facing up (the leg on the floor) with the inside of your ankle facing up and using your other leg in back for support, do this for a while than turn and do the other side
