By bodyweight standards it is, especially if you do it right. Sprints uphill or on stairs, long(or vertical)jumps, dragging a weighted sled/tire, ect.

Working your legs is tricky with bodyweight. That's why I always did squats, even when I was doing a bodyweight routine.

Dips are alright I guess, but they target your chest and tris a lot more than your shoulders.
wow. that leadup really built the suspense. Then I guess by your standards I do absolutely no legwork.

what would you recommend for shoulders? cuz this has been working mine jsut fine.

By anyones standards you really aren't. Not in a strength or hypertrophy specific way.

For shoulders? Really? OH press, front and lateral raises, Push press, handstand pressups if you want a BW exercise. There are plenty of ways superior to dips.

Running is not leg work. Uphill sprints and stuff is good for cardio and your calves, but not really your legs. For BW leg stuff, you can do squats, jump squats, lunges, and my favorite, pistols(1 legged squats).

widegrip pullups-3x
neutral grip pullups-3x
dumbbell snatch-3x
chinups-3x
squats-3x
deadlifts-3x
db bench press-3x
bentover rows-3x
arnold press-3x

and i'll kill of with some pushups or add another excercise

No offense heavy rob, but that isnt so much as a routine as it is like a practice or something. The the OP if your goals are to get stronger follow that routine posted above me, or look into the training logs, Wukka, Negation, -GSP-, and southpaw all have great stuff in their logs.

Rob, running is not leg work. No strength and conditioning coach would ever tell you it is. You may get sore, but being able to run 30 miles does not mean you have strong legs. I run all the time, dont get me wrong, but like wukka said it is for CV endurance and depending on the course, calves. Squats, bench, deads, and milk and you'll see your size and strength skyrocket.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

yeahyeahyeah guys. I realize running isn't legwork. And sure, it's not an excellent workout. But it's all calisthenics, which is all I've been able to afford to do since I've been traveling so much for the past few years. It's more of an endurance workout than anything else. I'm not looking to bulk up, and I really don't need to increase my size at all. And now that I'm finally settled into a location for a decent amount of time, I'm going to get into a more regular routine. I'll keep you posted til then.

thanks for the advice on BW workouts. I'll implement a couple of those soon (I used to do them. really wish I hadn't stopped).
