"He hit his head and then his body and then did the same over again."

"He hit his head and then his body and his his head and then his body..."

How do you say this properly? I don't remember the idiomatic expression used for this.

If you're only repeating it once:

"He hit his head and then his body, and then did it again."

"He hit his head and then his body, and then did it once more."

If you're repeating it several times:

"He hit his head and then his body over and over again."

"He repeatedly hit his head and body."

If you want to be a little bit funny with it, you could steal the phrase to rinse and repeat:

"He hit his head and then his body, then rinsed and repeated."

It sounds a lot better when using a passive voice though:

"Hit his head, then his body, then rinse and repeat"

However this sounds more like instructions on how to assault the subject of the sentence and might change the meaning.
