Question by  Hortense (206)

Is it normal for my heartbeat to skip after exercising?

I often have palpitations after exercising. Is this normal, or is it dangerous?

It is normal and not dangerous if it happens only sporadically. To prevent this, be sure to warm up suffieciently before your workout and cool down the last 5-8 minutes.

I do not consider palpitations normal after exercising. This is something you need to get checked out by your doctor. There is a possibility that it is no big deal, but I would not want to take the chance.
