    Talking Workout routine opinion?

    This is what my plan is (I fell off for a while due to work and had no time but I plan to come back in full force

    Workout Routine
    4 days a week

    * 100 squats
    * 100 crunches
    * 100 hip dips
    * 25 push ups
    * 100 arm reps of choice
    (All to be increased as days progress)
    * Pilates video of 10-15 minutes

    Cycling or elliptical for 25-35 minutes (no limit) twice a week

    My goal is to tone up and build some more muscle.

    I’m not trying to get huge and bulky, looking to gain about 15lbs of muscle. I know everything about the nutrition factor so I’m not looking for any information in regards to nutrition

    OP, that's not going to build much muscle if you're talking all BW exercises...

    If you want to build your body with calisthenics, you need to look for resources that show you how and not wing it on your own. It will also take a much longer time than a barbell. You could put on 15 pounds in 8 weeks if you did it right.

    Doing the workout by itself as described will put on some amount of poundage of muscle. Particularly as it gets easier, this will be the indicator of several factors, one being form practice in the form of muscle memory, fusing of muscle cells which is the more painstaking of processes, and commenced gradual hypertrophy of said muscle cells as you eat and train more. More temporal effects will come in the way of sarcoplasmic fluid that will puff up your muscles, providing 95% of your visual discernment of progress. The other 5% is in those first 3 and happens slowly as you get adequate protein.

    The muscle cell fusion and hypertrophy will respond much better to progression of exercises. That can be in the form of having more training sessions, expanding the training session by amount of reps, or increasing your ability to do the same total work faster.

    I agree that it's a good idea to add pullups to your routine. Basically only do enough so that you can add it consistently into your regular workout.
