    Check out "The Naked Warrior" by Pavel, it's all about body weight exercise. It had me doing one legged squats in a relatively short time.

    Check out "the naked warrior" it's worth the read as with other Pavel books it's an information overload. Sometimes I wish Pavel would just say say "for newbs and average guys do xyz..." intstead he give "xyz" and several variations some easier and some much harder. The most difficult I find about good material is organizing it into a complete weekly routine that can me modified as I progress, that's why I like stronglifts.

    As for Pavel and his "mother Russia" gimmick, I like it it reminds me that Russia isn't as inferior as public school led me to believe.

    There's a book called Convict Conditioning that's very, very similar to the Naked Warrior, and it has detailed progressions on how to do certain bodyweight movements (one-handed pullups, pushups, handstand pushups, etc.). Good read.

    I love the Russian gimmick. "Do exercise like this, and you will be able to work tirelessly for hours!", instead of the lame American ones "Do exercises like this, and you'll have shapely buns!"

    GMB has some great programs using parallets (P1) and Gymnastic Rings (R1). They also have a Floor Exercise program coming out soon (F1). http://goldmedalbodies.com/

    Beastskills is another great one already mentioned. Lastly if you like Sonnon's material he just released a program called Tactical Gymnastics not to long ago, the movements are not terribly complex but its a fun and challenging program. His grappler's toolbox also has some great gymnastic/break dancing type conditioning movements.
