When I'm really sore from overdoing it, I've found that *light* cardio is the key to recovery. If I'm still sore a couple of days after, a light walk, or even better, yoga, helps reduce the pain and stretch out stiff muscles.

For me it depends just how sore I am! If I'm really hurting I rest up, take ibuprofen and soak in some Epsom salt and stretch maybe do light yoga and walk. But if I'm mildly sore cardiovascular workout and you can do weights on a region that isn't sore if possible.
