    What's the best amount of time you should give between workouts to allow your body to recover?

    Depends on several factors and some of them being which body parts and if you're being assisted by outside products... I think the rule of thumb is 24 hours min. but most workout splits have a body part focused on once maybe twice per cycle but you have to keep in mind that many body parts get much more work out of them throughout the week in conjunction with your other body parts.

    Like Jayhawkk said, it depends on several factors. Exercise intensity, volume, size of muscles trained (for example, exercises that utilize the vast majority of your lower body muscles, will take longer to be repaired than a smaller group of muscles, like your bis/tris).
