A top NYC personal trainer has revealed that it is possible to get the supermodel-like gap-between-the-thighs look without resorting to cosmetic procedures or extreme eating regimes. While targeted inner-thigh workout may be healthier, it is by no means an easy option and requires some serious effort.
One must do 12-15 reps of each of the five different exercises, which include squats, lunges and the terrifying-sounding Single-leg Romanian Deadlift.
While standing tall with feet just beyond shoulder width, place dumbbells by your sides and slowly squat until your hips are parallel to ground. Hold your position in the bottom of the movement for three seconds and return to original standing position. Be sure to not let your knees hang over your toes while lowering to the ground. Keep your shoulders pulled back and chest upright.
2. SINGLE-LEG ROMANIAN DEADLIFT
Stand with feet together and emphasizing your heel, hold a dumbbell or pair of dumbbells with hands slightly more than shoulder-width apart. Make sure your back is straight and abs tight, slowly lower the weight towards the front foot while raising the other leg behind you for balance. Once the weight reaches mid-shin level, push through the ground heel to return to the upright position and squeeze the glutes at the top position. Repeat on opposite leg once completed with set.
3. GLUTE BRIDGE WITH MEDICINE BALL BETWEEN KNEES
While lying on your back with with knees bent and feet flat, place a medicine ball between your knees and raise your hips in the area to full extension. Squeeze your glutes and hold hips in air for five seconds at a time. Squeeze the ball as hard as possible with your knees as this will help emphasize more inner thighs.
4. LATERAL LUNGE
Begin with stepping to the right beyond shoulder width while keeping your toes forward and your feet flat. Squat through your right hip while keeping your left leg straight. Squat as low as possible, holding that bottom position for three seconds. Push back to the starting position and repeat on the other side.
5. WALL SQUAT WITH MEDICINE BALL BETWEEN KNEES
Squat with your hips parallel to the ground against a wall with the medicine ball between your knees. Be sure your lower back and shoulders are flush with the wall. Squeeze the ball between your knees and sustain this hold for 45-60 seconds.
