During “Weber World Record Week” Sept 11th – Sept 17th, Alicia Weber, with her high-energy levels, garnered another 5 world records in a variety of physical fitness disciplines.
First, tackling the track on Saturday, Sept 11th, on a warm, windless, sunny day, she did jump rope running A.K.A rope skipping with her 1.5 lbs weighted speed jump rope (which makes the attempt more difficult). Jump rope running makes running harder because the use of swinging arms is crucial in gaining speed in normal running and they can’t be used, since one is holding a jump rope. Jump rope running is most effective when there is no wind. She lowered her world record in the 400m and set a new world record in the 800m.
Next on Monday, Sept 13th, she redeemed herself on her previous failed attempt on Ring L position dips. Alicia now captured the world record in Ring L position dips (considered the toughest type of dip).
Alicia does 4 Ring L Position Dips in a row within 1-minute for a new World Record.

On Tuesday, Sept 14th, she captured the world record in 3 minutes of deep squats where arms are held straight out and knees bend breaking parallel. She tried 5 sets to the max and her best of 152 reps for deep squats is the new world record for 3 minutes. The legs must bend and break parallel on every rep while the arms are held out straight throughout the whole exercise. This is an extremely grueling exercise for the quads and glutes. Alicia got sore quads and wobbly legs that lasted 2 days. Alicia says, “I don’t recall ever getting this sore, and in particular, getting wobbly knees after an exercise. My knees were wobbly for 2 days. I had to watch my every move. It is a new experience for me and after aquatic exercise recovery in a cooler water pool, I was back in the game!”
On Friday, Sept 17th , Alicia re-set her one arm pushup world record by completing 131 reps in 10-minutes.
Alicia Weber holds over 30 world records in strength and endurance. She is featured in the record book “Believe the Unbelievable”.
