MILFORD, Mich. (WXYZ) — A metro Detroit man broke the Guinness World Record for the most burpees in one day in Milford on Sunday.

Bryan Abell, who is in the U.S. Army, spent 12 hours doing 4,689 burpees, more than his goal of 4,500.

His sister, Katelyn, said it was a way to raise money and awareness for their "Stronger Warrior Foundation."

The organization makes and fills crates to send overseas for active duty military members. They raised over $1,300 for their cause.
