Default Body weight training, every day.

Dips, pull ups, chin ups etc.

Thoughts? Was in a discussion with somebody about it

I'd say Why Not? think of gymnasts. They do the same exercises almost every day

Did it. Did a Gymnastic based strength program 5 days a week. Worked great.

Check out Chris Sommers website dedicated to gymnastic strength training.

Thanks for the feedback guys, any great leg exercises I can do BW? Squats is gonna take a lot for me to feel anything!

Pistol squats
Lunges
Anything else? As well as explosive stuff?

Box jumps (or over a large hurdle)
Tuck jumps
Broad jumps
Single leg broad jumps

Any other suggestions to keep my legs strong and explosive?

What are your goals?

A good body weight leg exercise would be jump squats.

Squat right down to the floor, explode up and jump as high as you can, then as you come down sink back into squat position. Repeat.

They're pretty brutal.
I'd rather be doing heavy squats for 5, than a ton of jump squats put it that way.

Honestly, maintain my mass and strength while improving my athleticism. I've never done any plyometrics or bodyweight stuff for athleticism really.

Thanks man, I'll be doing those in the morning!

Cool, good luck with it mate.

Jump squats are the best I've found myself, haven't tried the others you put above.

In addition to this, you may find Convict Conditioning also helpful. Includes body-weight exercises, progression schemes and sample routines.

Yes, all are great for back development as well as arm/grip strength. Not sure about the need to do them every day as with any muscle group, they need recovery/rest too IMO.

Thanks dude! I tried those, and they are really good! I can feel it in my hammies and glutes for sure! I will be mixing it up I think!

I should say you are right.. As i write this it's day 4 after my pull up / dip workout, and day 3 after my lower workout... and EVERYTHING hurts (Everything!!). This is the most DOMS I've ever had, seriously. I can't even straighten my arms from the DOMS in my Bi's haha! I know it's because I haven't done anything for about a month due to holiday, illness and moving etc, but hey.. It hurts lol. I swear a day long pump after it though!
