Edina woman breaks world burpee record

An Edina woman put her physical and mental strength to the test and now holds a world record.

Stephanie Tennessen recently broke the world record for the most chest to ground burpees in an hour by completing 715. The previous record was 709.

To train for the attempt, Tennessen said she did more than 1,000 burpees each week.

While training, she raised $7,000 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Tennessen said she’s eyeing another burpee record to possibly attempt this spring.
