Hey people could you guys give me a full pushup only workout that targets every part of my chest (upper,lower,inner and outer) and that will help gain mass. The reason I can't use weights is because I only have 2x 4kg dumbbells and they are way to light.

The P90X chest and back routine uses strictly push-ups for chest.
The order is: Normal, Military, Wide-stance, Incline, diamonds (heart-to-heart), and over-and-under.
I think the workout would cover most parts of your chest. You might struggle putting on mass doing just push-ups but it will tone you up. I use a weighted vest when I do this routine and saw decent results.

there are only 2 parts to the pec major: upper and lower. to target these parts just elevate your legs or hands while doing push ups. You could do closed chain flys: get in the push up position with ur elbows straightened, then slide both hands away from each other, go as far as you can then slide them back to the starting position. This will be hard so I would start off by doing it with your knees on the floor. oh and you'll need to decrease the friction by using something that will slide easily on the floor....dont forget clapping push ups either
but dont expect major gains. at a certain point your muscles will adapt to your bodyweight. YOull need more resistance to continue to challenge yoru body and stimulate growth.===================================

body weight pushups
Planche pushups! Increasing resistance is required to get continued growth, and with body weight training you achieve this through continual progression towards a final exercise. Check out and work through the progressions to get to a planche pushup and by the end you will have a pretty impressive chest, not to mention an extremely strong core!
