FAGE Total Split Cup

Hello frands! We’re excited to be partnering with FAGE today for this epic, HIIT stair workout that combines stair repeats with intervals of bodyweight recovery moves. FAGE Total Split Cups are one of our favorite pre or post-workout recovery snacks because they’re super high in protein and low in sugar…not to mention they’re are d to the lish.

First and things first, let’s talk pronunciation. I’ve always wondered how to pronounce FAGE, I mean, I eat it every day, and I’ve finally got clarification for you!

“Fa-yeh”

Kind of looks like eff yeah! But it’s Fa-yeh..like YAY!

FAGE TOTAL 0% SPLIT CUPS (fruit flavors)

  • Non-GMO
  • Protein-rich (13g!)
  • Lower in sugar (Only 11g)
  • Super satisfying
  • Made with REAL ingredients

We love FAGE’s Total Split Cups because they are made with real ingredients and you can pretty much take them anywhere…like to the gym! I always like to add a little something to my yogurt, but these Split Cups make it easy because they’ve got a flavor attached to them! Guys, the 0% and 2% Split Cups have more protein than sugar and THAT’S HUGE. Fueling your body properly post-workout with enough protein is just as important as the workout itself. Split Cups are made with all-natural Greek-strained yogurt and come in 3 milk fat varieties: 5%, 2%, and 0%. There are lots of different flavors, but my personal favs to fuel with after a workout are 2% cherry, 0% blueberry, or 2% peach.

Get Your Workout On

We’ve got the perfect workout for you guys to do before you treat yourself to this delicious snack. Think stairs workout meets HIIT workout. We’ve been loving the challenge of stairs workouts this summer because your heart rate goes WILD. Our favorite stairs to use in Minneapolis are the Target Field steps in downtown and that’s where we shot this workout! These steps have 4 flights of stairs and we love to “ladder” them for our workout. In other words, go up the first flight and come back down, then go up two flights and come back down, etc.

**Stairs Ladder: we used a set of outdoor stairs that had 4 flights. A stairs ladder means you go up the first flight and then back down. Then, go up 2 flights and back down…3 and 4. If you do not have a set of stairs composed of 4 flights or want to do this workout inside, we recommend using the stair stepper machine for 20 flights of stairs.
