    You're supposed to follow a progression instead of doing the same exercises all the time. Just like you would add weights if you would train in a gym, but honestly even when doing it right it is still a meme if you can afford a gym membership.

    mental stress does take a toll on your testosterone levels and working for 12 hours a day does sound like a lot of stress.
    either find a way to destress or find a different job

      this might sound a bad idea but i distress my self and get testosterone boost from having a buff of a cigar with a nice coffee as a pre-workout
      but it gives me boost as long as i dont buzz myself up with the nicotine overdose

    Sketch a simple program, divide push, pull
    Ill sketch one out, idk your fitnesslevel, so I'll bang some random numbers

    Pull day:
    Shrugs on bar 10x3 (them serrastus and ab activation)
    Pull ups 8x5 (the next easier variation => chin up => rows, decrease reps if you need)
    Max deadhang

    Push day:
    Wall push up/pike push up 5x5
    Push ups 8x5
    Tricep extension 5x5

    Abs (do this for every workout)
    Russian twist 20x2 (old a weight in hands)
    Obligue crunch 20x2 (20x2 per side)
    Crunch non retarded form 20x2 (you contract abs only enough for your shoulder blade to not touch the ground, then back down)

    Also, you could add a bit of legs with some pliometric shit (explosive exercises) for ez gains, split squat, jumping squat, lounges yada yada

    progressive overload, basically, if you can do more than 20 pushups, switch to a harder variation, like typewritter pushups, one arm pushups.... Doing squats for strenght and hyperthrophy is dumb, do pistol squats for example.

      9reps? 100 push ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squads and a 10km run each day wil get you there. This is my routine and my current body is pic related

    Honestly Op, just eating right, doing 50 pushups and 25 pullups in the morning would help you tighten up until it becomes too easy

    Calisthenics is the opposite of a meme, don't be gaslit by this board, if anything weightlifting is the meme, seeing as weightlifting as we know it was invented in the modern period by the garden gnome Eugen Sandow, and like many of the products of modernity is useless, expensive and creates mental and physical problems.
    Calisthenics is ancient, useful for all the good activities you'd ever want to do including sex and warfare.
    Before anyone mentions halteres to cope they were used in a similar manner to weighted calisthenics are today.

    You can get a workout done at the gym in 45 minutes that's better than 3 hours of calisthenics. You honestly have no excuse
