comment Bodyweight exercises to increase legs strength
Pistols and loaded squats (e.g. barbell front or back squats, dumbbell squats, goblet squats with a kettlebell) are the options that come to mind. Single leg deadlifts, too. I would focus on the logistics or medicine to do those before looking for alternatives.

comment What is the optimum training intensity to prevent atrophy when on a caloric deficit?
@zero-divisor Certain rep ranges produce certain types of results. Caloric deficits make it hard to achieve goals, particularly hypertrophy. Beyond those basics, I think this is a "pick whichever suboptimal approach matches your long-term goals best" question.

comment Outdoor gyms equipment/machines
@K.L. If your goals are an improvement in looks, posture, fitness, strength, and endurance then any program will work at least somewhat. If minimal equipment is a requirement then pick one of the three references and start doing it. Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

comment What is the optimum training intensity to prevent atrophy when on a caloric deficit?
Because I think training in non-hypertrophic rep ranges won't help build muscle mass, whereas training in the hypertrophic rep range while on a deficit might work to a diminished degree. It might be the case that such an approach is doomed from the start and the best approach is to work on reducing body fat or maintaining strength. I think your question lacks context, that is, why are you on a calorie deficit?

Yeah, but they don't just lift through it forever, they fix it.

If you exercise in certain ways, then yes, going to the gym could make you skinnier. To gain muscle, see this answer.

comment Should I use any supplements to get quicker result?
This answer may help you generally. Narrowing down your question, or splitting it into separate questions, could help.

comment Is 5 to 6 times workout per Week too much for the muscles to recover?
@Aytac That sounds like a good plan for strength and kickboxing. (Also, your english is quite good.)

This answer has significant overlap to your question, particularly since "replicate 5x5 with bodyweight" is in my opinion impossible.

comment Bodyweight strength training
I'm trying to write an answer, but I keep tripping over the idea of "replacing" a 5x5 barbell program. Bodyweight strength training can be productive, but it can't replace barbells--they're fundamentally different tools.

comment Bodyweight strength training
Which question do you want to ask: "Is bodyweight training effective" or "Does BW training omit muscles" or "Provide me with a program"? This question needs to be one specific question, preferably with background about your goals if the question relates to programming.
