CLERMONT, FL ( Feb 7-14, 2012)—Alicia Weber broke 2 men’s world records and “pushed” to new levels in extreme strength and balance world record challenges as her week of record breaking got tougher each day. All the following world records are published with Record Setter World Record Book – the world’s fastest growing world record book! All her records this week involved pushups and balance and a few other additives as you will SEE!
On Feb 7, 2012, Alicia broke for the 4th time her 3 medicine ball pushup world record! In 2010 she first set the world record with 35 reps in 1 minute, but now she has set the new world record with 52 reps in one minute!
World Record # 1 for Alicia in Strength Balance World Record Challenge Week
On Feb 9, 2012, Alicia broke the men’s world record by 5 reps to set new world record in Most One-armed Hindu Pushups on a Basketball. Here she sets the record with 13 consecutive reps (although not required by the rules, Alicia holds her rest arm behind her back to hold the strictest standards to make exercise most difficult when performing the exercise).
World Record # 2 for Alicia in Strength Balance World Record Challenge Week
On Feb 10, 2012, Alicia created a new type of balance record, while holding an egg on a spoon in the mouth for the ENTIRE record. Alicia began with 11 consecutive strict pullups, then with a maximum of 1 min rest allowed (Alicia only rested 38 seconds), she then completed 15 consecutive strict decline one arm pushups with legs only 2 feet apart or less resting on a surface of 18.5 inches high. This record and the ones that follow are inspired by Darryl Learrie – the record holder that made the raw egg famous with his one armed pushups on the raw egg! This particular record has a tribute to Darryl Learrie in the beginning.
World Record # 3 for Alicia in Strength Balance Challenge Week
On Feb 11, 2012, Alicia did a double record endeavor! In AM she re-set her Most Consecutive 2 Medicine Ball Tricep Pushup with an Elevated Leg record..completing 25 consecutive reps in 1 minute. Then, in the PM Alicia broke the men’s world record by going 28 reps over the record for the Most One-armed Pushups, while balancing an Egg on Spoon in Mouth
World Record # 4 for Alicia in Strength Balance Challenge Week
For this record, lower chest (below breast) must touch ball and then end with arms in full extension for a rep to count. Alicia does 25 consecutive in 1 minute. Her previous record was 10.
World Record # 5 for Alicia in Strength Balance Challenge Week
Alicia breaks men’s world record and does 50 reps. The previous record was 22 reps. Then, the same day Alicia broke the men’s record, a man was in fury to get this record back and did 51 reps to re-claim record.
On Feb 14, 2012, on Valentine’s Day, Alicia showed “she had a lot of heart!” Alicia “pushed” to a new level and completed her most demanding strength balance challenge of the week! Alicia invents new record – a spin off from the one she just set, but this time she requires the strictest form and makes it even tougher! Alicia completes the Most Consecutive One-armed Pushups Holding a 10lbs Medicine Ball on Back While Balancing Egg on Spoon in Mouth. In this record, a rope is also tied around her legs to keep them only 2 feet apart or less. And guess what she makes it tougher, but SHE DOES EVEN BETTER! She does 59 reps NOW!
World Record # 6 for Alicia in Strength Balance Challenge Week
Alicia enters uncharted territory and completes 59 consecutive one arm pushups in very rare and tough form for world record!
Alicia Weber was inducted in the Official Pushup Hall of Fame in 2012 and here’s what she says on her record week, “Our goal in the Pushup Hall of Fame is to “push” ourselves and others to new levels and get out of our comfort zones. I did that this week, especially with the egg on spoon in mouth records. I don’t practice balancing an egg on a spoon in my mouth, I just gave it a go for the first time this week. The same is true for the hindu pushups. My conditioning from other pushup/balance training carried over for these particular events.”
