Is doing push ups and sit ups and other body weight exercises enough to at least get you muscular?

What this guy said mostly but there's a few caveats.

If you end up running a small calorie deficit (you'd have to be in balance before and spend a lot of times doing these)/ you might gain some definition. If your muscles are really small they might grow. To experience hypertrophy you still need a level of challenge during your 8-12 reps (x3-5). Sit ups and push ups are "I'm not a piece of shit" tier fitness and so you will outgrow them very early if you're not fat, don't get me wrong they have their place and are good to do, but they will not make you muscular. There are ways to use your body weight to challenge yourself more but it is doing things the hard way. If you're broke there's "convict conditioning" style, because there's lots of harder variants on body weight (plus you can hold stuff, carry a bag etc) but if you have a choice lift weights but like any work out you want to put some thought into working all your muscles hard, several times over the routine/cycle.

Also if you can easily do a thing every day you're better off doing something a bit harder you need a day to recover from.

I used to get 1-2 cm per month on my legs just doing some squats and sprints at home no weights high intensity. I liked the results.

I used to do parkour ten years ago just around when I was getting out of highschool and I was, as told by others, "ripped." I never used weights, and my only exercise besides parkour was sit ups and push ups. As long as you keep the fat off your body you should be decently strong and well defined just from body weight exercises.

If you have access to weights and equipment then I highly suggest lifting weights instead because it is significantly more efficient at building a muscular body.

Get an adjustable dumbell, seriously, its the staple of any home gym.
