Can you gain weight from exercising too much? As over-exercising can lead to hormonal imbalance or changes, including testosterone and cortisol (our stress hormone), it can drive overeating and the body can also begin to burn muscle instead of fat.

Muscle weighs more than fat, so you can expect to gain weight at the beginning. 

Go by how you look and feel and not what the scales say.

That is right, your body will develop its muscles so you will be weighting more.  The important thing is to realize that the surplus weight comes from additional muscle mass and not fat.

As somebody who used to be in good shape but is now way out of shape...just know that in each circumstance there's a range that's okay. Smaller increases and decreases might not mean anything in a statistical sense and figuring out what's in the "to be expected" range is kinda hard. You may already know this, and sorry if you do, but a lot of people worry about 5 pounds (2 kilos, for most of the world) and they shouldn't.

Not exaclty,

Your body may look more toned and at first a little bloated but the bloat will not last.

I have noticed that after a few days of high intense excetcise, the number on the scales was higher, but my gum instructor said that this is because I loose fat and replace it with muscle tissue.

One last think, sometimes after the excersise you feel like you want to eat a lot which is risky because you will ruin your diet and gain weight. Try not to indulge in food consumption after the gym.

Let's be honest, the problem for overweight people is not that they exercise too much, it's that they exercise too little.  Let's clear that up first.  Fat people don't worry about 'exercising too much'  laugh

With that said, if you feel like you're exercising too much, you probably have access to resources like gym trainers who can professionally advise you anyways.

Back to the original question - it depends what type of exercise you are doing.

If you are training for an endurance event, like running a marathon, or triathlon, then the bias will be towards cardiovascular workouts and aerobic activities. There is a racing weight to be targeted - the leaner you are, the less the muscles have to work to carry that load at speed, over a specified distance. Think of Eliuid Kipchoge, or the build of any other elite marathoner.

On the other extreme, we have bodybuilders who are focused on sculpting that perfect body shape. This involves alot more gym work, weights, machines, HIIT, and static exercises. Much less cardio (which can reduce muscle mass).
