The Coveted Thigh Gap–Workouts That Show Results In 2 Weeks

The Coveted Thigh Gap–Workouts That Show Results In 2 Weeks. I’m a slacker.  I know this does not come as a shock to you, but I always secretly hoped that if I just lost the weight, those adorable toned thighs and arms would show up.

Yeah…adorable thought, I know.  I’ve been grimly doing push-ups for a month now and don’t really mind them, especially now that I’m seeing results.  (Editor’s note: I hoisted our horrid, heavy lawnmower into the back of my SUV to go mow my mother’s law.  Zoe said “Dang, Mom!  You’re buff!”  Yeah, not yet kiddo, but thanks.)

Up next?  The thighs.  I know, we all hate them.  Interestingly most personal trainers I’ve spoken with say the thighs, fanny and abdomen (which are all connected through most exercises, anyway) are actually quick to respond when you’re consistent with your workouts.  You with me?

 

4 Fast Thigh Workouts That Show Results:

2. Take a big step forward with your left leg  until your left thigh is parallel to floor. Do not allow your knee to extend in  front of your toes. Let your back leg bend and heel come off the floor. Do not  lean forward. Push off the left leg, and step back into starting position.  Repeat with right leg. Start with eight repetitions on each leg; work up to 20.
Erin’s note: the Thigh Squeeze was the killer for me–but I can see results after only 8 days!

4–Ball Squeeze, Starting Position

Muscles it works: Inner thighs

Ball Squeeze, The Move
