Yeah, I agree.
There are exercises like pullups/dips were you can load. Same with things like hanging leg raises and such...
but mostly it's just "feeling" it as the exercises get easier. That's one of the things I don't like as much -- you don't get the sense of progress as you do with weights at least directly.
