WOW! Just reading this story made me tired! A man in Detroit performed 4,489 burpees in 12 hours for a military charity. Unreal! 

Bryan Abell is an active U.S. Army soldier, who is obviously in amazing shape. He performed the burpees on Sunday at the Carls Family YMCA in Milford, Michigan, to raise funds and awareness of the Stronger Warrior Foundation, which sends personal material to active duty members of the military. Over $1,300 was raised, which is awesome!

If you don’t know what a burpee is, it’s not the easiest thing to do. And to do over 4,000 of them is an amazing feat! The Stronger Warrior Foundation live streamed the event on Facebook.

Abell is now waiting certification from Guinness World Records to see if his attempt set the world record in the maneuver. I’m thinking he probably did!  Check out video of Abell doing the burpees here. Warning….you may need a nap after watching this! I do. 🙂
