Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
The heart sounds that you are feeling during the workout are called as Palpitations.
This is absolutely normal.
Everyone has increase in heart rate on exercising but a few people even feel them.
If this occurs even during rest then this requires evaluation otherwise this is considered normal.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
