Australian mum smashes world burpee record

If you've flagged your exercise-based New Year's resolutions, perhaps this might give you a little March motivation. 

An Australian mother-of-two has set a new world record for the most burpees completed by a woman in one hour. 

Forty-year-old Kate Beely completed 1321 burpees in 60 minutes, beating the world record by a massive 42 repetitions. 

She told 7News the challenge was about "committing to something and seeing it through".

Ms Beely has been training for the record attempt since October.
