Deep Squat

Squats are perfect exercises for a thigh gap, which target numerous parts of the body including the inner thighs. You can begin by spreading your legs shoulder width apart with your feet flat on the ground and your toes pointed slightly outward. Squat slowly down with your butt out and hold the position for a few seconds before coming back up to the starting position.


Slide Side Lunge

Side lunges work the legs and glutes, but slide side lunges in particular target the inner thighs. To do this stand with your feet a few inches apart and keep you hands in front of your chest. Put your weight on one of your legs and gently slide to the side with the other one as you squat down, then slowly bring it in and repeat the process with the other leg. Try to complete 10 reps of these on each leg!

Scissor Raises

This is an exercise which requires a lot of patience and motivation. First lay on your back and position your legs at a 90 degree angle. Open up your legs into a V position and pulse in this manner for a minute without stopping. Make sure to go at your own pace but don’t forget to push yourself harder!



For this exercise all you need is running shoes and a staircase. To complete this exercise, face the railing of the staircase and cross one leg over the other to the next step and then cross the opposite leg onto the next step, starting from the bottom of the staircase. Continue in this manner until you reach the top!

Famous Quotes

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

Bruce Lee

Laying Leg Lift

Lie down on your right side of the body and evenly distribute your weight. Try to straighten our your legs and stack them on top of each other. Then slowly lift your top leg up and down as many times as you can for at least one minute and repeat on the other side. You will definitely feel this tomorrow!


Thrust and Squeeze

To do this exercise, lie down with your arms at your sides and knees bent. Squeeze your abs and bottom, and slowly lift your butt off the floor pushing only with your legs. You should be forming a small bridge with your body without lifting your upper back from the ground.

Targeting only one part of the body for weight loss is impossible, but you can see slight changes by incorporating cardio and toning exercises into your routine. Stick with your workout plan and you should see results in a couple of months! What are some of your favorite inner thigh exercises for a lean thigh gap?
