How Much Rest Do You Need Between Workouts

If a muscle is trained hard it is generally recommended to rest a muscle for at least 48 hours before working the same muscle again. This allows muscle to recover and adapt. Often people will train the same muscles on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays or Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and rest the muscle in-between. If a muscle is trained very hard in a given workout by doing extra sets, that individual may train that muscle only two times a week or every 5 days or even once a week.

Rest is necessary between resistance exercise to allow muscle to repair, recover, and adapt.
