Take them as and when you need them to begin with but once you get stronger you'll find you can do press ups/sit ups every day and either alternate chins/pull ups every day or do them every other day. But for me this is a result of doing press ups/chins/pull ups for years so i'm more than used to it. some days (not weights days) i can bang out 6 or 700 press ups/sit ups/burpees etc in around an hour (i never go above 150 chins or pull ups a day tho) and feel fine the next day, a bit sore but nothing major and i soon loosen up once ive stretched off. Yet a friend of mine and my brother tried one of my bodyweight workouts and were ****ed for nearly a week after. It takes time to get used to it but the results are worth it.
