MOde Fitness Challenge: Day 1

Here we go! For the next 12 days, we'll be posting a strength or cardio mini-workout for you to try out. Each one is 10 minutes or less. Tack it on to the end of your workout, or string them together for an at-home workout you can you do anywhere for a quick reset. We'll also include some tips for healther holidays and daily inspiration. Without further ado, here's where it all starts. Let us know how you're doing by tagging us on facebook #12daysofmodemas!

Beast MOde (your workout)

Try this quick-but-nasty circuit for a whole body wake-up call. Make sure you're warmed up and do each exercise as quickly as you can with good form.

20 squats

Tips: Keep weight in your heels and don't let your knees come past your ankles

20 squat jumps

Tips: Use your glutes to power off the ground. Press your arms back as you jump to add an upper-body burn.

20 squats to knee lift

Tips: go from a deep squat, keeping your core tight, as you draw your right knee to your left elbow. That's one rep Return to squat and repeat on other side.

30 second plank

Tip: Engage your core and keep a straight line from your neck to your heels. Don't let your front body sag--your back and shoulders will hate you.

30 seconds plank jacks

Tip: Keep your hips in line, don't let them sag or pike up.

30 seconds of mountain climbers

Tip: Bring your knees as close to your chest as possible.

Repeat 2-3 times.

MOde Lifestyle (your ticket to healthy holidays)

Crush a sugar craving with this protein- and good-fat filled cookie substitute. Take a slice of whole-grain (preferably sprouted) and sugar-free peanut butter (we heart Trader Joe's unsweetened one with flax anc chia) and sprinkle with stevia. For a more holiday feeling, blend fat-free cream cheese, vanilla extract and milk or soymilk with stevia for frosting. Enjoy!
