Thigh Gap Workout [FITNESS FREAK]

Forget the plastic surgery and the extreme diets if you wanna get the coveted (to some) THIGH GAP ...this is when your thighs don't touch in the middle.  I find this to be some major crazy talk, but I do love me a good leg workout.  

Do it the HEALTHY way! :D

Celebrity personal trainer MATT TOWNSEND says he can get you some VS Angel-looking legs (via The Daily Mail).  Or something like that.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.
