I got a 5 day workout routine.
Sunday - Back
Monday - Shoulders
Tuesday - Legs
Wednesday - Off
Thursday - Chest
Friday - Biceps and Triceps
Saturday - Off
But I always do at least 100 push ups daily no matter what, is that bad for muscle repair.

lol yeah, I mean I could maybe see that being the case for the world record holder of push ups or something, but for most people, the only way for walking to be as stressful is if taking 100 steps were as huge a challenge. I could only see that being the case walking up hill dragging at least a light sled behind you.

It's not the worst concept to comprehend, and he's not saying it literally. He suggested that the push-ups aren't going to failure, and his point is that in general you are still using your muscles.
I don't think it's a very fine line between training past proper recovery and overtraining, and you could just do it as an added pre-set. I'm of course applying this to just your chest day, but otherwise I would try holding off of them the day after you do chest, especially if you are going to failure, or are sore at all from them. Plus, I might leave a day or 2 before chest day, and that wouldn't leave very many days of the week, lolz.
Doing shoulders also is something to think about. Make sure this is all in proper volume.Les crevettes ont été cuite quand le téléphone a sonné.

Depends on your goals. If your goal is to get bigger and/or stronger then best case scenario you're just wasting time, worst case scenario is your pushups will have a negative effect for the 3 days you already have working shoulders/chest/tris.
If your goal is to get good at doing 100 pushups then it looks pretty good.

while its not the end of the world, id say u'd be better off doing it every 2nd day if u are addicted to it..
"Though the concept is not scientifically validated in detail (it should be considered as a hypothesis rather than a scientific theory), it is useful from a practical standpoint. When training athletes, it is impossible to wait until scientific research provides all of the necessary knowledge." Vladmir M. Zatsiorsky, Ph.D.

With a user name like "alleyezonme3" I'm willing to bet you're thinking that this is going to make your chest huge! Well its not! As someone else previously stated its all about your goals. If you want to grow, then stop! If you want to use this as a "show off point" for the next tailgate party then go for it.
