It is my opinion that BW stuff will become extremely boring over the long-term. It also will not "show" as much progression from a muscle density standpoint as a weight lifting program. I used to be a BW guy (..and I have good genetics), and the only time that I was satisfied with the way that I looked was when I had a REALLY GOOD pump (..which wasn't representative of what I looked like during normal day-to-day activity). I was strong, but that wasn't enough. I guess it just depends on what you're looking for. Yes, it could be utilized when you're on vacation, but there are gyms almost everywhere, so even vacations don't truly advocate for a strict BW program. I'm not saying that they aren't effective in building strength/muscle, but your world isn't going to be rocked upside down from the gains either.
