GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood native Cameron Dorn has shattered the world record for the number of burpees, called the most strenuous exercise in the world, according to city officials.

Dorn surpassed the existing record of 7,684 burpees Saturday morning, and by 1:45 p.m. city officials said Dorn was up to 9,654.

Dorn began his grueling exercise feat Friday afternoon in the Sweat Box gym, and is expected to continue until he completes 10,000 burpees, officials said.

Officials said that by setting a new record, Dorn also raised $10,000 that will benefit Ware Shoals High School and a school in Peru.
