So I'm new to exercising and I exercised Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I'm am so sore today!! I've made Sundays my rest days but I feel like if I don't do something I won't get ahead. So what do you on your rest days?

Yoga or a light walk

you should have two rest days, ur body is healing so they are very very important to take.  i always feel weird too like i should be doing something some times i will just do a good long stretch sesson just to loosen up make sure u drink lots of water on ur rest days

Some stretches and/or foam rolling. But just when i feel like it. Usually after legday this urge is bigger than after upperbody.
