In brief: Depends

Many people rest deeply after exercise since they are physically fatigued.
Furthermore, exercise can help release stress/anxiety so they are mentally rested. Some who exercise too late in the day, are too stimulated to sleep. Others who over due it may have pain that does not allow them to sleep. Exercise and deep sleep are 2 natural ways to release growth hormone that can help repair your body.
