Inner Thigh Workouts & Thigh Gap Truth Revealed!

The thigh gap. A small amount of space between your legs that females everywhere beat themselves up over. Many females see this gap as a sign of “skinny” or “in shape”, but they are terribly wrong. In order to obtain a natural thigh gap your body composition must be changed. Thigh gaps are solely based on bone structure, and you shouldn’t damage yourself over bones. Girls with thigh gaps have wider hips that spread their pelvic bones out. The only people who have a thigh gap that doesn’t seem natural to their bone structure are corpses with decaying muscles. Many of the pictures of thigh gapped girls are taken with a certain modeling technique. You simply stick your feet together, arch your back, stick your bum out but remain upright, and try to push your knees out. This will bow-leg your knees and create a “natural thigh gap”. Your thighs are beautiful, healthy limbs attached to your glamorous body. Embrace them! Love them! Don’t worry about a thigh gap. A man won’t love you less if your thighs touch, and if he does he is not worth your time. According to a survey, 9 out of 10 men would rather their girl not push for a thigh gap and just embrace her own body.

The inner thigh area is an area that is capable of housing strong muscles. Toned thighs start from the inside out and these steps will help you tone up your inner thigh area to become muscular and healthy. No thigh gap, no problem. Let’s begin!

Begin with heels touching and toes slightly turned out.  Keeping heels together, rise up onto your toes. (Hold on to a wall if you feel wobbly, but maintain posture.)  Bend your knees into a half squat for two counts, then come back up in two counts, keeping heels together. Complete 5 reps of 10.

Position your feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed straight ahead. Place a medium rubber ball (or a knotted beach towel) between your legs just above the knees. Squeezing your inner thighs to keep the ball steady, lower into a squat for two counts. Hold for one, then return to standing for two counts.

Place your feet just wider than shoulder-width apart and point toes to 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock. Grasp a dumbbell (three to five pounds for beginners, 8 to 12 for more advanced) vertically in front of your stomach. With arms straight, lift the weight to shoulder height as you lower into a squat for two counts. Hold for one count, then slowly lower the weight and return to standing for two counts.

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and toes pointed out to 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock. Slowly lower for two counts into a squat position. Hold the squat for one count, then straighten your legs for two counts to go back to the starting position.

Lying on your back on a mat, bend your knees so that the soles of your feet are flat on the floor. Place a medium rubber ball (or a knotted beach towel) between your knees. Contract your inner thighs to squeeze the ball for 30 seconds. Relax for 10 seconds, then repeat the cycle four more times.

 

How To Walk In High Heels Like a Pro

As crazy as this seems, many women still haven’t mastered the art of walking in heels. Hundreds of style-hungry ladies skip the heels section each day because of a fear of the unknown. You won’t necessarily be walking on 5 inch heels by tomorrow, but these steps can help you feel like you aren’t walking on stilts every time. Being a person who was weary of heels in the beginning I know how you feel, but today I wear heels 2-3 times per week for about 7-8 hours per day. Let’s begin!

I’ve been wearing heels since I was a teenager so my feet have been thoroughly trained to be in heels. If you are just starting out, don’t immediately go for the stilletos.  Get some heels between 2-3 inches and preferably with a bit of a thicker heel and wear them around the house. Wear them when you are cooking, wear them when you are doing your makeup, when you are vacuuming, walk up and down the stairs, etc…  You don’t need to even get dressed up, just walk around and wear them in your sweats, nobody will see you but if you wear them during normal activities without leaving the house, you will get a lot more used to them and not feel foolish because nobody will see you practicing.  I do this when I’m breaking my shoes in and it helps a lot in that aspect as well. Practice truly makes perfect and the more you break in the heels the more comfortable they will be.

Nothing looks worse than a girl who’s wearing shoes that are too big or too small and you can see them visibly struggling to walk in them.  I wear different sizes with different brands and even within the same designer I can go up or down a half size so make sure that you are wearing the size that fits your foot and not just the size that you “usually” wear. To help with sizing you can also get insoles. When you are buying shoes, walk around the shoe department in them and make sure that your heel doesn’t pop out or it’s not squeezing your toes or the sides of your feet. Don’t think that shoes will stretch because most of the time they won’t stretch enough and they’ll still be too tight to wear.

Walking slow is much better than trying to keep your normal pace and then falling on your face.  Don’t feel silly for walking slow or taking small steps.  I mean don’t walk abnormally slow (if you do, you may need more practice) but look around you, there’s always a ton of people walking slow and you probably don’t stare at them weird or anything do you?  So ignore your own self conscious feeling of “dang people are probably staring at me because I’m so slow” and just take your time walking.  If you have to go up or down stairs, always hold on to the handrail or your significant other to keep steady.  It sounds silly but I’ve seen people take tumbles because they didn’t have anything to hold onto but if you are wearing heels, you have a higher chance of slipping or getting your footing wrong when going down stairs.

When I know I’ll be walking a lot, I always carry a bigger handbag and put a pair of flats in there. Then when I’ve been on my feet for a couple of hours and I need to give them a rest, I’ll just slip on my flats, put my heels in the shoe bag and my feet are back to being comfy! There are even flats out there like these Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats that are foldable flats and are really compact to keep in your handbag.

Tips:

If a stiff shoe causes blisters, spritz the body with water and use your fingers to mold the softened leather to the shape of your foot or try special inserts to reduce friction.

The inner arch of the heel, or the breast,  affects stability. The farther forward the arch, the less you will feel off-balance.

Slipping on slick floors? Pick up a pair of sole protectors or score the soles of your heels with a key to create extra traction.

If your toes feel pinched, have the toe box stretched out at your local shoe repair shop.

If you suffer from low arches, slip in supports to relieve pressure on the balls of your feet.
