What causes severe heart palpitations after heavy exercises?
I would explain as follows:
I understand your concern and would like to explain as follows:
Weight lifting is one of the highly intensive exertions practiced for physical training (it is part of heavy sports).
As such is poses an excessive strain over body muscle and hence on blood vessels and hence a high loading burden over pumping heart.
This effect will lead on easily achievement of theoretical maximal heart rate and anaerobic threshold.
That's why you are experiencing heart palpitations. It is quite a normal reaction on such strenuous exertion.
After normal results of echocardiogram and Holter monitoring, it is confirmed the normal heart structure and function (no organic basis for arrhythmia generation).
Coming to this point, there is no restriction of practicing weights lifting.
The only advice is to follow such passion under strong supervision of a certified trainer.
Weights lifting should be gradually escalated over time and alternated with dynamic exertion such as cardio training, in order to achieve the greatest beneficial effect with minimal adverse outcomes.
You are advised to perform no more that around 20 minutes weights lifting three to five times weekly.
So, you shouldn’t worry about your palpitations.
Just follow a careful training schedule.
Hope you will find this answer of some help!
In case of any further uncertainties, feel free to ask me again.
