If you are relying on body weight training to build strength and power, remember that simply changing hand position or joint angle can give your training a new feel. For example, on push ups, move your hand placement from the standard position (slightly wider than shoulder width) to inside your shoulders to start putting more emphasis on the triceps. Same basic principle applies to body weight squats: legs close together emphasizes the outer thigh, while legs farther apart and angled emphasizes the inner thigh.
