It's ok for rest days to be "active rest". So a nice walk, not to intense, would be fine on a rest day. If you're feeling overly tired and sore, you probably need a rest. But I think a good strength program (I'd suggest full body 3 X a week for a beginner), with some more intense cardio a couple days a week plus some light walking would be fine. Just listen to your body.

Okay, my question is how much is "to much exercise"?

The reason I ask, is I love to walk, and I want to walk every day. So 7 days a week. But I am trying to change up my cardio so I don't just walk. I am also trying to incorporate more strength training and also yoga. So, I don't want to go overboard and am trying to find a balance. I know that you have to have rest days. I just like to do something every day, but every now and then I do like a rest day.

So, opinons on what I should do?
