    Can you do pull ups every day or would it be over doing it?

    Push ups are a great warm up, does the same apply for pull ups or would it be the equivalent of doing squats or bench press everyday?
    -Some people say good things come to those who wait, truth is, good things come to those who work..... who work later.....who work harder...... who are willing to go further than anyone else to get them. If you're waiting for good things to come to you, you'll be waiting for a pretty long time.

    just an interesting read and an interesting approach to doing a specific workout everyday...

    and often times i do pullups to warm up...it really just depends on how easy it is for you to do a pullup if you can only manage 5 pullups at most...i wouldnt consider that the best "warm up" option

    You can do pullups every day. Most calisthenics can be done every day, actually.

    Think about it - in most calisthenics contexts your body ends up being pretty light, and your tendons adapt pretty darn quickly to that weight. Once you've reached a certain stage and been doing a move for a long enough time, you'll be harded pressed to hurt yourself even if you try.

    BW exercises are often the exception.
    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 don't believe this one bit. Maybe if you did low volume. You can't do 500 push-ups a day without hurting yourself. Obviously, you can't do a certain number of pull-ups a day without hurting yourself either.

    The answer is you can... as long as you don't overdo it

    It's possible for you to go so hardcore in a single day that you might need more than one to recover, in which case, going that hard each day could be a bad idea. It's usually the point where you can't pull as much the next day as the previous, when you're getting a lot of strains, not feeling awesome, etc.

    It's also possible to pull every day but do so little work that you're just doing maintenance and not stimulating growth.

    Then there'd be a sweet spot where you train each day, and do slightly better each time, so that each day you do more and get stronger. But hitting that area's weird and hard.

    It's probably more common to have a mix of days where you slightly overtrain and slightly undertrain a bit, based on feel or whatever. My prob's is that I usually spend too many of those undertraining to the point of losing gains, until I get mad and overtrain too much and rape a tendon =/

    Still did around 6 sets this thanksgiving of roughly 3 pins then 3 sins which feels pretty awesome....and I want more.
