The Glute Series

by Thea Hughes

Welcome to The Series, a new segment on The Chill Times designed to bring focused exercises straight to your home. With the guidance of Thea Hughes, a functional strength coach at SESSION and creative marketing consultant, we’ll be providing at-home workouts for all the areas you really care about. Check back every other Monday for a new workout, and follow Thea to connect further about questions or concerns.

We’re sure that you never skip leg day – we don’t either (*looks around*). To make sure your glutes are on point, Coach Thea Hughes is serving up our third installment of The Series featuring the throned backside. Give it a try — just don’t go half a$$.
