Brazilian enters Guinness for memory of burpees squats

8

Laureano’s original goal was 1,000 reps, but he was a little lower because of a leg injury he contracted two days before the attempt.

Burpees squats it’s the gym workout everyone loves to hate: you start standing up, squatting, putting your hands on the floor, jumping back in a push-up, inverting and getting back up.

Now do this 951 times. That was the amount of burpee squats that a Brazilian living in Singapore completed in one hour, breaking the record and joining the Guinness in an attempt to raise money for the niece who was born last year with a serious heart disease.

The search for the record last month by Cassiano Rodrigues Laureano, who turned 35 on the day of the attempt, was verified by the judges of the Book of records on Monday.

“I’m tired,” said Laureano, after completing the record at the city’s Tricolor Fight Team gym, where he teaches. “It wasn’t as smooth as I thought it would be.”

“But I’m really, really happy with what I got.”
