Sounds like a great weekend mine was real similar. A good friend of mine and their extended family all came to Orlando for vacation and me and the kids met them at Universal on Saturday and their hotel on Sunday. Lot's of fun.

*no fast*

No structured workout today either, ended up with a later day at the office than planned and had to get hom to help my wife with the kids while she is packing the place up for our move on Saturday. Hunter and I ended up playing Catch Tennis, which was a game he made up where you catch the ball instead of using a racket, along with similiar rules to normal tennis. This was kind of fun and we did it sans shoes so that was interesting. Afterwards I did some jump roping but nothing timed just for fun with the kids.

Arm not feeling great, I definitely strained it a bit helping my friend move on Saturday, which is awesome because I move on this coming Saturday. Sucks.

*fasted workout ate shortly after*
BW = 190.2

1. Movement Prep warmup
inverted hamstring - backward - 8L/R
elbow to instep - forward - 5L/R
lunge w/lateral flexion - forward - 6L/R
t-pushups - 10

2. Gymnastic Warmup
ring rows - 10, 10
handstand practice - 30 seconds, 35 seconds
back extension +GHR - 5, 5, 5
feet to hands (hanging) - 6 (started to hurt my forearm)

3. Neck WU
swiss ball neck circuit - 15 seconds front, 15 seconds L/R side, 15 seconds front, 10 seconds L/R side

4. Strength circuit (1 minute rest between each work set)
Deadlift - 45 x 5, 135 x 3, 225 x 2, 265 x 2, 265 x 2, 265 x 2, 265 x 2, 265 x 2
ring dips - w/30# vest - 2, 2, 2, 2, 2
chin-ups - w/ 30# vest - 2, 2, 2, 2, 2

5. Metcon - Annie
50-40-30-20-10
Double unders
situps - feet unachored
Time: 13:25 (4:04, 1:48, 2:04, 2:46, 1:47)

Rowing@5 - hurt my arm, only did >100m's

KB Figure 8 waiter walk - 2 x 55#'s x 1 width of weight room, 2 x 35#'s x 2 width of weight room
KB farmers walk - 2 x 55#'s+fat grips x 3 laps around weight room

Notes:
-Handstand hold - This is feeling better, I could hold it longer than 30-35 seconds for sure but I always end up falling when I'm trying to push my feet away from the wall slightly to try to work up to a freestanding handstand. I know the Beastskills tutorial says the fingers do most of the balancing but I'm having problems with this.
-Neck WU - I will keep adding 5 seconds a week, the front one feels fine but the side holds feet a bit awkward.
-Deadlift - Felt good today, I will stay at this weight and add reps for the next 2 weeks.
-Ring dips + chins - No problems adding more weight, I think I'll stay at 30#'s for now and work on adding reps, my last 3 sets of chins were somewhat slow.
-Annie - I don't think I've ever done this as written as when I used to do CF a lot my DU's sucked, I'm unhappy with my time because I was having problems stringing my DU's in a row, the majority of the DU's were DU-single-DU-single....etc not DU-DU-DU which I only managed a few times. I remember why I hate situps now as well. When I got in the shower and there was this stinging sensation on the top of my ass I noticed I had rubbed a big patch of skin off, nice. The unachored situps also slowed me down big time. Boo.
-KB waiter walk + farmers walk - just threw some grip stuff at the end which was fun and didn't hurt my left arm.

That is pretty funny about your rear from the situps. I have so many mat burns right now on my feet and elbows it is ridiculous. Kind of funny how rubbing a small area of skin off can hurt so bad.
