    Anyone do Pullups/Dips everyday?

    Before the workout police get in here, let me say that my father was poor and only had access to a playground (during his late teens) with monkey bars. He never weight lifted, only did pullups and dips and obtained a very impressive upperbody within a short period of time. He did them everyday. Within 2 years, he went from 125lbs to around 175lbs.. very impressive considering he has never worked out legs.

    Only pushups, pullups, and dips. Obviously, his progress shows that you don't necessarily need a day of rest in between and that you can workout the same bodyparts multiple times a week. Atleast 50 pullups, 50 dips, and 50 pushups every single day. Maybe this is because these exercises aren't as "high-intensity" as weight-lifting. Gymnasts do them everyday as well 40 hours a week.

    Anyone here perform pullups/dips/pushups everyday?

    Ofcourse, I won't go crazy like him since I plan to be in the gym 3 times a week. I am doing maybe 2 sets of 10 pullups and dips everyday since I just got one of those 2 in 1 pullup/dip bars. It really doesn't seem harmful and doesn't affect my strength in the gym.

    I don't, but some people do and make gains. Its not "physiologically correct" (the bodybuilding.com equivalent of "politically correct", a term I haver hereby coined), but it works. Cats in the armed forces to repetitive calinstetics on a daily basis and some of those guys do get a lot bigger from them. The pc part of it is that it's a limited style of training. Beyond a point, you won't make a lot of size gains. With weights on a decent split, you will have proven continued progress that can be sustained.

    I would treat it as doing squats/deadlifts/bench press every day.

    Probably best to allow your body to rest however it comes down to volume and intensity.

    I reckon a 3 day week with one day between 2 at the end would be best for most people.

    I do chins nearly every day, Dips prolly 3 or 4 times a week and pushups about the same. Olympic lifters work the same muscles 5-6 days a week sometimes multiple times a day and a lot of them are very well built especially in the legs, traps, erectors and shoulders. Just depends on your loading you don't wanna constantly be going to failure every day on these exercises as that can burn you out fast. Thing is though if you wanna continually make size and strength gains you need to find a way to add external load to keep making it harder. Overtraining is thrown around too much i believe too many factors to consider with it. A well rounded program i think though will include weights, body weight exercises, and general conditioning work all together.

    well you know if you are going to go that route, you can always find ways to add weight for increased resistance. I love weighted doing weighted dips! strap on a 45 pound plate and its on! but yea, for pushups just put books on your back. dont have weights? recruit the little jackass kid around the corner to hold on to your legs while you do chinups. that would make for a sick pic.... I dont know about the rest a yous, but i can see the possibilities... ha
    It's rainin' negs! Hallelujah!

    I make typos.

    My max used to be around 15. It's dropped to 10 lately. So throughout the day, I do 5-6 reps and avoid going to failure. Let this be a test, and we'll see what happens. Decided not to do dips everyday... just pullups.

    I'm still continuing with my regular split:

    1) Legs/Shoulders

    2) Chest/Tri

    3) Back/Bi

    I used to do pullups everyday, before I started doing them weighted. It certainly helped building up on the movement. The GtG system is based on this.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I used to do them everyday. 1-2 sets before working out (8-20 repetitions), and weighted sets on back day.

    Now, it's just weighted sets on back day of 6+ repetitions.

    Im a female I couldnt do 1 pullup a month ago, I took the advice I was given on here with negatives and installed a pullup bar in my house.

    I do Pullups and Dips every day at the Gym, I do many sets rather than as many as I can all at once, I can definately tell I am getting better at them and I do not struggle when I began.

    Sometimes I will skip them if I am at all sore in those muscles.

    I can only do a max of 4 Pullups Correct .......5 if I kick my feet.

    (Keep in mind I could only do 1 proper one 2 weeks ago)

    I do 2 or 3 alternating between pullups and chinups. All day long.

    I Truly believe that is the best way, not reaching muscle failure so you can keep on going.

    Overtraining would be your biggest concern. Make sure your body is getting proper recovery time.

    At boot camp I was on my face daily, on average we did at least 200 pushups a day. This never caused overtraining. Body weight exercises like that can be done daily with a regular diet.

    i do pushups, pull ups and dips everyday. but only about 5 sets at 50% of my max set unweighted. and once aweek ill do pull ups and dips with weights and go all out. helps me maintain my 20+pullups for pft's without leaving me physically drained.

    i do 100 pushups and 40 (pullups+chinups+hammer) everyday before starting any muscle group. i don't do dips as my gym doesn't have // bar but i would love to do that.
    I would not say it has given me any mass gain as such but it has definitely improved my grip, forearm strength and lats shape.

    Thumbs up

    I do pullups & pushups almost every day - but the goal is endurance and increasing reps, not "getting big".

    Used to, worked very well. Never went above 5 reps, started going weighted but not to failure.

    Both strength and endurance went up a lot.

    I like pullups everyday, I don't know why but for some reason I would prefer to do dips less often than pullups but maybe I'm weird like that, doing them more often definetly gets you better at them, pavel tsatsouline of dragondoor knows his stuff.

    Probably best to allow your body to rest however it comes down to volume and intensity.

    I reckon a 3 day week with one day between 2 at the end would be best for most people.

    I take it you guys aren't impressed by gymnasts and their severe overtraining.

    Gymnasts aren't doing weighted pullups everyday, and working to increase the amount weighted. Bodyweight exercises are easily one of the worst myths propagated in conventional fitness. Bodyweight is just a number - it says nothing about how challenging or easy the exercise is going to be for any given individual. Would you tell the guy who can't pull his own BW to just keep doing whatever his max is on the assisted machine? No, for the same reason you wouldn't tell the guy who can't bench two plates to keep benching his max every day and expect results.

    no but that guy with a 225 1RM could bench 175 for 2-3 sets 4-5x a week and expect results, frequent exericse should not be done all out or it will fail; people don't really know what overtraining is and it surely IS NOT doing the same lift/bodypart multiple times a week medium-heavy.

    Yes, but we have no idea what percentage of whatever person's 1RM bodyweight X is going to be. This is why bodyweight is a stupid, stupid term. Prescribing 50 BW pull-ups a day could be all too challenging for some or all too easy for others.

    If you're doing them (correctly) every day, your goal is endurance - not mass and strength. When working endurance, "overtraining" is a minimal concern.

    Very intersting

    Out of 87 workouts, I have done

    chinups: in 34 workouts, for 329 reps total.
    dips: in 26 workouts, for 337 reps total.

    Obviously, his progress shows that you don't necessarily need a day of rest in between and that you can workout the same bodyparts multiple times a week.
    I think that is reasonable, especially if the workout order is changed such that the body part isn't getting exercised in the same way each workout, that will minimize repeated use injury.
