Every bodyweight motion typically offers variations for resistance. They're not as easy to fine-tune as free weights or machines but you can still fine-tune them to a great degree. And you can compensate absent the gym with more volume than you might otherwise be able to get in a gym, longer rest intervals for intensity/strength days, etc. And there's always the option to attach weights to your body to add more resistance to any bodyweight motion, including ghetto ways like just load up a school backpack with heavy books or anything you have around the house.
I was just beginning to bulk before lockdown. But due to the gyms being closed- i didn't want to risk gaining to much fat. The weights I have aren't challenging enough to stimulate growth. Im torn between maintaining (attempting to recomp) or cutting.
That's up to you but personally think bodyweight motions are ideal for cutting... since a deadlift doesn't reward less body fat. A pull-up or chin-up definitely does. Losing body fat means losing excess weight attached to your body, so you get rewarded both ways in terms of progression: gaining strength/muscle, as well as losing dead weight in the form of fat. If you're undecided, you might go for just a modest deficit for a gradual cut that is at the lowest risk of losing your gains.
