Overtraining

Overtraining can be more detrimental than not training at all. This link has some good, basic information about overtraining on a molecular level through to ways you can check if you're overtraining yourself.

I find that I I'm training rings I can do it back to back cause when you do bodyweight stuff your muscles heal faster. I don't know if this is true but I feel as long as I'm not sore it's time for a sesh.

I think the main thing for beginners to look out for with bodyweight training (particularly straight arm work) is tendonitis. In daily life, you don't put as much strain on your tendons compared to what is demanded through bodyweight training, so in the beginning you're VERY likely to develop tendonitis in the arm if you overtrain (which can come about relatively quickly).

My opinion is that when you're starting out you can train everyday. But as you get more advance skills such as back lever and front iron cross whatever you need to rest days. At least that's been my experience.
