In brief: Yes
If your palpitations are intermittent and caused by atrial fibrillation, exercise can reverse acute palpitations.
By quickly increasing your heart rate by doing jumping jacks or a quick sprint, you can over-ride the signal to the heart and get back to a normal rhythm. It doesn't work for chronic palpitations and may not always work for intermittent ones , but it is worth a try. Don't over extend.
