If you're cutting, how often should you take rest days? I've heard train for three days, then take a day off(but no more than one rest day in a row) is good.

I am cutting and training every other day right now. I'm not doing any cardio yet.

I've started doing 1 day on, 2 days off. Previously this sounded like an amazing amount of rest time between workout sessions, now I think much differently. You should be working out with enough intensity that going into the gym the next day is not a pleasant scenario imho. I'm progressing much faster in my lifts than I ever have before.
