I'm 13 5'7"ish and 115lbs. I'm pretty fit, i have a decent 6-pack and pretty nice arm muscles. I want to work out and get really nice and fit. I do these as many days as possible, which is usually 3-4 days a week due to soreness.
I do 4 sets of the following:
20 push ups
10 15lb dumbell curls
20 sit ups
20 calve raises
(I do the following after 2 sets of the above things)
5 pull ups
5 chin ups
5 hammer grip pull ups
Feel free to leave any suggestions.

Is this a good workout for a 13 yr. old boy?

POVERTY ABS AND ARMS.
Those are useless and not nice at all. I would suggest that you eat a lot and lift but since you're 13 and I think that's too young, I suggest you just eat a lot and do those. And by a lot, I mean A LOT but if you think otherwise and if your parents or something allow you, go ahead.Back at it.

Better than doing nothing, but I see no mention of progressive overload, not to mention that some areas of the body aren't getting adequate attention (20 bodyweight squats? No shoulders?)
Really, you would find it easier with weights, but there are acceptable bodyweight routines, just make sure you PROGRESS. If there is one thing you take from this post, make sure you understand and implement PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD.
Also make sure you are eating enough.

Since you are thirteen and that tall you should be doing some kind of weight lifting whether its a home or in a gym. I started when I was about 12 and it was the best decision I had ever made. Now obviously I was supervised by my dad but I was young and now I am very comfortable i the weight room. I suggest it highly.

But for 13 that routine seems good, do some shoulder stuff, and do 2-3 sets of squats instead of 1, make sure you touch your toes it'll help stengthen your hamstrings, . It's more than I would've done 2 years ago.6' 165
I'm not big and Idgaf. I barely lift. I'm also not sure why I'm on this site.
