I'll add a bit. Soreness really isn't an indicator of anything. It's not a sign that you have or haven't recovered. Also, lower body typically takes longer to recover, so I'd lean more towards the 72 hour rest over the 48 hour rest. Certainly, 2 or 3 days in a row of performing the same movement isn't advised.

It is evident that squats and lunges are the best way to sculpt your glutes and build lower-body strength. This will help to maximize productivity and efficiency at work.

Thanks for the info. I will aim for a 24 hour rest, but if I'm still sore, I will give myself an extra day.

Strength training works by creating microscopic tears in the muscle fibers, which then grow back stronger. But it takes time for this to happen, which is why most experts recommend resting 48-72 hours between ST sessions.

Bodyweight exercises are no different from any other form of strength training - they work the muscles in the same way, and you still need to rest between sessions.

Lunges and squats are like any other strength-training exercise, so you should rest a day in between them. In general, you should take at least one day in between working particular muscles, but it's okay to take two. (By that, I mean that if you work your lower body on Monday, you shouldn't work it again until Wednesday. Likewise for any other muscle group.)

Is it okay to do them 2 or 3 days in a row or do you need to wait a day in between? And that's another thing, I've always after lifting weights you need to rest that body part for 24 hours, but now I keep seeing you need to wait 48 hours. Which is it? Thanks!
