Eat more, rest more.
I've been training home for some time now, doing some push-ups pull ups squats and so, every other day.
Point is, I seem to progress a bit, then suddenly I go back to where I previously was. It's like I take a step forward and then 1-2 steps backwards, and It's pissing me off. I sleep quite well, My diet isn't peachy, but it doesn't suck, And I'm pretty damn sure I ain't overtraining.
What am I doing wrong? is it the volume of the workout? the intensity? the frequency?
P.S- the latest 1-2 steps backwards happened when I fixed my pushup technique, which makes sense, but I got weaker over time, which is damn weird.
Eat more, rest more.

Maybe that's the problem... If your training strategy really is "do some pushups, pullups, squats and so every other day", I'm going to just say that's the problem and call it a day.

True, it's not such a very clear program, but that's mainly because I do my workouts home, and in a very very tight schedule.
My workout pretty much consists of 2 sets of pushups (max reps at each set), 2 sets of pull ups - one regular and one with an underhand grip, also for max reps, and 2 sets of squats for max reps.
My pull up reps are pretty much consistent, yet my pushups seem to decline every once in a while (got to about 60, then went down to about 30..)
What are your goals?
