Welcome to the forum Buckyx! :)

Read some others' logs here, take note of their goals, look at what they are doing to achieve them, then mix and match according to the type of strength and fitness you want to build and I'm sure you'll find your path.

hey man welcome to the forum!

that sounds awesome doing the basic calis! don't forget to train legs

you can try different weekly routines, examples are:

- upper/lower
- push/pull
- push/pull/legs

you can invent other things too, i recommend you train every exercise frequently. make sure you do enough sets and reps... if you gonna do low reps do some high reps too... make sure you don't undertrain.

as long as you do other leg training on the other days yes it will work.

Better to keep it lighter while you learn form and only increase a lot if you KNOW your form is sound. Have an experienced squatter or coach assess your form or put up some videos. That's for back squats. As far as front squats go, just do them. They will basically fix themselves if you stick with them. Still wouldn't hurt to put up a video though.

Goblet squats > box squats > front squats > back squats works for just about everyone if you don't have hip issues or serious muscle imbalances.

I feel I will hit 20 pull ups soon, not sure about 40 dips mark
but I have problems with core now, not sure what routine to do

dragon flags are still impossible, one-legged and hip extensions are hard on scapulas
windshield wipers reps went up tho, strict HLR to bar hit a plateau so I dont know how to continue
