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.
