Muscle Recovery after Exercise

The general guideline is that you should give muscle groups at least 24 hours up to 3 days of rest for optimal recovery and performance results. If it’s less than 24 hours you may risk overtraining or injury and if it’s more than 3 days then you may not be working out the muscle groups enough to see results.

To speed up healing and build up muscle faster, I would recommend fueling your body correctly before your workout, carefully increase the load of your weights as your muscular strength progresses, consume an appropriate amount of protein post workout, stretch before and after your workout, and a big one is making sure that you get plenty of rest and sleep!
