Body Weight Programs

These are pretty good programs. I used the pushups program for like 3 weeks to go from 16 pushups to 50 pushups. y
I am going to do the pullups with chinups ( i like the biceps) and when I can get to 20 I will start to add weight.
You could do the pullups one with dips and the pushups one with inverted rows

Final Verdict: programs really help in driving up reps on bodyweight exercises in a short period of time without the usual guess work that comes with bodyweight exercises.

cool, but there's not much guess work in bodyweight exercises imo.. just have fun and rep everything out, tons of sets until you're toast.

I don't know I seem to push my self too hard. Subconsciously, whenever I do pushups or pullups, if i dont go to ultimate failure, I feel sort of "guilty" afterwards. When I go to failure, I have to do it for ALL sets, and afterwards, I just feel fried.  Eventually, I actually "fear" the specific exercise. I am too much of an all or nothing guy.

Its WACK and i know that is acting like a pussy. I just like these because it gives me mental piece after i do pushups

Let's say one reaches an upper body physique and strength level they are satisfied with.  Would doing push ups and chinups/pullups with BODYWEIGHT only like every other day be enough to maintain that muscle mass/physique and strength in the upper body?
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"

A freaking useless question.

What physique level is the person satisfied with? Manny Pacquiao? Brad Pitt in Fight Club? Tommy Jeffers? Ronnie Coleman?

What physique level did the person start out with? Super skinny? Lean and muscular? Burly, i.e. chubby but with solid muscle underneath? Straight-up fat?
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

Lol my bad...

For example let's say 5'8" 140 lbs 15% BF/ Max bench is 1x BW/ Had some muscle but was more like skinny fat with a little belly fat covering the 6 pack/  Was typically seen as a generally skinny guy (not the extreme toothpicks you see here and there)

And then workout for like 15 months/ 145lbs 8% BF/ Max bench is 1.5X BW/ Lean & ripped/ Trained the whole 15 months with only food (no protein shakes)

When it comes to specific bodyweight jumps, apart from:

Leap Ups
Step Ups
Thrust Ups
Burnouts
Squat Hops


What other types of bodyweight jumps are people doing/recommending?.

bounding, single leg pogo hops,  depth drops, depth jumps.  Single leg pogos in place for max height in sets of 10 or so are highly underrated imo, they are especially good for 2 leg "squat jumpers" who have to slow down their running jumps due to the depth they need in their loading phase.
Relax.
