If you wanna improve your chins, doing them frequently would help. Just cut the set before failure each time - i.e. when rep slows down, that's your last rep for that set.
You could even just setup a chinning bar in a doorway and do a set whenever you pass through that door. As long as your diet is in order and you don't take the sets to failure, you won't 'overtrain' (a term I really dislike, but whatever)

Overtraining is not a real thing. Unless you can move objects with your mind your body will ALWAYS outlast your mind.
Abs and pullups/chinups/pushups are something everyone should do every day. If chins/pulls aren't incorportated into my workout for the day I will do them at the end. The end of every workout for me is:
some abs - HIIT - 1 ab set / 1 pushup set until I'm tired - as many pullups I can do until failure with alternating grips.
Also, I don't kip.

Our body is stronger than our mind. I don't know anyone who can actually overtrain their body. I personally rest as little as possible, and can always make it to the gym the next day. Might not be able to bench 315 every day but I don't consider that overtraining either.
Just saying I don't believe in overtraining because your mind is the bottleneck in the equation, not your body. Unless you are a jedi o.0

I think more often the case is our brains tell us to stop and we go with it, its pretty rare you say suck it and hurt yourself.
I remember a few months ago my IFBB buddy would always say, "why arent you lifting 315" when I benched 275, and my asnwer was always, I'm too little dude. Well one day he spotted me and I got 2.5 reps on my own, failed the third but I wasn't even expecting to make 1.
I don't even want to think about rectal prolapse...
