    Is it possible / relatively easy?

    I'm guessing push ups are really the only main thing i could do?

    burpees, jump squats, pull/chinups, tricep dips, pushups, plank. etc...

    You won't gain as fast as weights, and you'll stall early simply because its difficult to add much resistance to any exercises. (stalls the wrong word for it, but it fits good enough for me).

    IMO i wouldn't bother, and get gym equipment/membership. chinups and dips are vital though.

    Can do plyometrics, your push ups, sit ups etc. Can improvise with some things if you wanted to, to replicate moves like upright row or whatever but it's still never going to replicate a gym.

    I mean if you can't afford a monthly fee you should at least invest in a barbell and some dumbells, but personally for muscle building a gym is by far the best way.

    Plyo's are recommended only after you've already trained a bit, they can wreck your body if not done right. DOMS after is a ***** as well.
