Your muschles need rest to grow (I've heard). Though when i started doing push up every day a few monts ago i noticed a huge improvement. i started from 20ish and was doing 50 in one go by the end.
Hope that helps.

Yeah, I dont see a problem with it,I do it and Im sure alot of people here do to.

If you are new to this sort of thing though, I would strongly suggest doing day on,day off for 2/3 weeks. Just to let your body get used to it otherwise if you overdo it straight away,you will just get injured.

It's rare to injure yourself with body-weight exercises, at least in my experience.
You can dive right into Push-Ups and Sit-Ups to failure if you wanted.
The only thing you need to take care of is potentially injuring your back if you do too many sit-ups on a hard floor.

Not at all. I do push ups and sit ups almost every day and it's never injured me.

Make it a habit. If you are looking for more muscle you will always be doing more pushups. That will place unussual stress on your shoulders. You can do pushups and situps everyday to continue getting stronger. That is fine. Bulking with muscle is a different story.
