Five Easy Ways To Get Thigh Gaps

Having thin, long legs is a must for most women. While men want bigger thighs this is an evident irony. However, if you want a thigh gap, you’re going to have to work for it.

Fortunately, we have a list for you of the best exercise routines to help you get that thigh gap you’ve always wanted.

Sumo or plie squats

  • Start by standing up straight with a gap between the feet.
  • Join both hands together in front of the chest. This will help you maintain your balance.
  • Squat down to the floor.
  • As you reach down, start to push yourself up.
  • Do 10 repetitions per set and 2-3 sets per day.

Thigh raises

  • Use a short stool for this workout.
  • Lie on your side.
  • Support your head with your arm.
  • Raise the upper leg up to the stool. Hold. Bring it down.
  • Continue to do this 15 times on each side.
  • Do 2-3 times a day.

Leg stretches

  • Position yourself on your hands and knees. Keep your back straight like a table.
  • Stretch one leg and the opposite arm, trying not to let it go to the other side or move or bend while lifting.
  • Stretch the opposite arm at the same time.
  • Repeat with the other set of leg and arm.
  • Do 10 repetitions per set and go for at least 3 sets.

Scissor Kicks

  • Lie on your back.
  • Place your hands underneath your bottom.
  • Stretch your legs out in front of you.
  • Point those toes outwards and start the scissor kicks.
  • The key is to keep the toes pointed out to maximize the stretch on the inner thighs.
  • This exercise also works out your lower abs.
  • Do at least 30 times in 2-3 sets.

Jumping Jacks

  • Start with the feet together and arms by your side.
  • Jump with your feet out to the side. Raise your arms above your head.
  • Do 4 sets of 20 jumps each.
