Hammer or Knife?

i do pushups, pullups and dips everyday. im gonna start using my dumbells and barbells too more often before i start going to the gym in a month or so.

however pullups and dips are very challenging for me, which is good. would i get more benefits from doing only pullups and dips as bodyweight exercises and taking away pushups?
for example i always do 3 sets of pushups, 3 sets of pullups and 3 sets of dips.

would it be better in terms of strength gains and muscle gain if i did 6 sets of pullups, 6 sets of dips and then did weights after. that way i wouldnt tire myself with the pushups??what do you guys think?i can do 50 pushups max.

Well my ? what are you trying to gain, what are your goals for needing to do these and at such High rep??

why not alternate no reason to lose either the PU or dips alternate weeks

alternate?like a day of pushups and a day of dips??
i have no goal whatsoever n regards to high reps, thats just how far i can go now. which is why i was wondering, if it was useless doing them.
