This started all the way back in 1989.
Every time I passed a pull up bar or anything I could grab on to over head, I banged out pull ups.
This became a daily practice.
Same for push ups. Push Ups for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Guess what happened?
Not only did I get stronger at pull ups and push ups. I was soon banging out more reps than anyone else I knew in these 2 bodyweight exercises. By the time I was 15 I was doing 20 pull ups in a row, easily.
But, as the years passed I eventually hit a wall and started feeling beat up.
My lats became extremely tight, my posture got messed up, I had shoulder pain and more nagging issues that interfered with my performance..
I didn't think bodyweight training could beat me or anyone else up.
Just like anything, you can always have too much of a good thing.
There is a specific way to use bodyweight training if you want to avoid beating yourself up.
Let me explain it here in this video so you can avoid the same painful mistakes I've made:

If you decide to use bodyweight training every day, break it up by using various exercises as well as varying the intensity levels.
Practice or GTG works best here.
Here's a sample week of daily bodyweight training, using this template and perform 2 - 3 short practice sets / sessions each day. Intensity is NOT the key here, just perfect practice.
Monday: Handstand Holds Variations
Tuesday: Pistol Squat Variations
Wednesday: Ring Training: Skin the Cats, Front Lever Variations
Thursday: Hollow Rocks
Friday: Pull Ups
Saturday: Ring Training: Push & Pull Bodyweight Exercises
