Olympic and bodyweight workout only
 
I have been thinking about doing a fullbody workout that involves only Olympic and bodyweight lifts. I like this style of training and would like to stick with it. What I was wondering is if in the process of using these exercises if I would also build muscle. My program would consists of pullups, dips, chinups, overhead squats, front squats, cleans, snatches and a few other variations.

You would absolutely build muscle too as long as youre going for progression of weight and reps. What you describe is a great way of training!

Pull on this forum are doing alot of this stuff and i would reccomend you to check out his log to get ideas or tips.

I would also suggest that you do regular back squats, since its a great overall muscle builder.

I also think you'll be missing out if you leave out back squats and dead lifts. Olympic lifters still do those lifts plenty and they'll only help your olympin lifts if you program it well.

Other than that, hell yeah you can build muscle. Honestly, no one needs many more upper body movements than what you listed. If people did a lot more dips, pushups, chins, and pullups instead of smith machine bench presses, pull downs and curls then they'd be WAY better off.
