Unlikely : to have a heart block if you are a healthy young man, however, if you have symptoms you need to be evaluated, also before indulging in any sport on regular basis, better be checked by your doctor first. Beta blockers can slow your heart rate, but why why are you on them? Don't stop on your own, keep the follow up with your doctor, wish you wellness
