Thanks for your reply. The reason I’m gaining weight is because my primary goal is to build muscle, so I need to be gaining weight. I’m aiming for around 2/3lb a month. I’d guess it would take me a year before I can do muscle ups & back lever. And while I want to do this long term, I wouldn’t like to think it would take me another whole year before I can even think of building any muscle. I know gaining weight will make some exercises more difficult but isn’t that the same for everyone that builds muscle with calisthenics?

I’ll go up to 12 reps a set before progressing. Do you recommend adding one rep per set or going for as many as I can do until I hit 12 per set? I got the adding one per set from a website called startbodyweight (sorry if I shouldn’t mention it here).

I’m also a little confused about the way my routine is. You said it looked adequate but then made it sound like I should be working out consecutive days? Also where would I add the weighted exercises?
