Vigorous exercise: I can't be 100% sure of what you are trying to get at so I am going to assume that someone was told not to do vigorous exercise following cardioversion. That being said, there is no formal guideline on this subject as far as i know. Your doctor decides what kind and how "vigorous" exercise can be after you are converted. I am used to patients being generally allowed to get back to business.

Exercise: Vigorous exercise is exercise that causes one to strain excessively or breathe rapidly due to repetitive arm or leg use. Rapid heart rate and perspiration also occur. Weight lifting can be vigorous but it's anaerobic so that rapid heart rate may not occur despite marked straining. Did your physician sanction vigorous exercise after the cardioversion?
