Rest days also depend on the strength training you're doing. If you are like me and training one muscle group per session, then you don't have to wait 48 hours between sessions. If you're doing entire body strength training sessions, you should probably wait that long.

Recovery time mainly depends on what you put into your body as far a food. Junk in junk out and it takes longer to recover.

It really does depend on the person as well as how active they are. If you're feeling a bit stiff from a workout, that's DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). It could take a day or longer for you to recover. I had one workout that left me crippled for a good 3-5 days. I could barely walk up stairs without whincing. That was a time when I wasn't very fit or active.

Now that I am more active and in better shape, it takes me 1-2 days to recover from an intense workout. What do I do ? I take a walk or maybe a yoga class as part of my recovery. If you're sore, you should do some light cardiovascular exercise. Keep moving, just not as intensely. you also want to do some stretching. some light cardio and a stretch will help with the soreness.

Do you mean strength training or cardio? When you say "overdo" are you meaning sore muscles? I assume you mean sore muscles.

With strength training, I always have, at minimum, 48 hours between each session. Cardio, well, I just push through it. If I am sore from a particular activity, then I may lay off of it for a few days but do something else that is cardio related. I take the weekends off for cardio. If I do any cardio on the weekend, it's more leisurely and not moderate to high impact activities.

when you overdo the exercise, how long does it take you to recover and get back to it?
