Two I have used in the past:

www.stewsmith.com

www.getfitnow.com (although this site isn't as good as it used to be)

But Stew Smith is the man when it comes to bodyweight exerxise.

wow thanks
yeah i bought all of stew smiths books and they are great just what i am looking for.
does anyone know which of these above sites books and videos most closely resembles stew's style of push ups, sit ups, cals, track workouts, sprints, pull ups, squats, lunges etc non stop circuit training format. that stuff really get you huffing and puffing.
id love to get my hands on some more workout routines for variety. these sites look like they have some good interesting stuff

The flat out best book on BW training that I have ever come across is "The Underground Guide to Warrior Fitness" by Ross Enamait. It is an encyclopedia of BW exercises. Check out his site: www.WarriorForce.com and www.Rossboxing.com
Ross is boxing oriented but his conditioning routines are great for anyone interested in fitness. He is also a great guy and will always answer questions. For $30 he sends you his book and a couple of e-supplemental material. The real deal.

Here is another endorsement for Ross Emanait. His books are chock full of functional exercises and great intense workouts. His workouts are similar to crossfit. They are also great for when you are traveling or need a quick workout and don't have access to the Crossfit site. He is very similar to Matt Furey (another excellent source) and Ross tends to give more exercises and more workouts. Plus, Ross is extraordinarily responsive. His responses are fast, detailed, and well thought out. Ross speaks from experience as an athlete and he also has a masters degree.

Yoga and Pilates are also great resources. Astanga yoga, Power yoga, and Kundalini yoga are styles that Crossfitters would probably enjoy. Pilates tends to be more core focused whereas yoga tends to work extremities more. They work great together. I find Yoga is very helpful as an active recovery on Crossfit rest days.

The best source for strength oriented bodyweight training is probably Pavel Tsatsouline's The Naked Warrior.

Scott Sonnon has an interesting book called BodyFlow. I'll post more about that and the Naked Warrior after I've had more time to apply their methods.

Recently, I've had some interesting correspondence with Joe Driscoll. He wrote a book on functional bodyweight training. It looks promising. I'll post a review soon.

Does anyone know about Tony Checchine's The Routine or Luck 13?

Does anyone know about the Yoga aspect of Matt Furey's recent training?
