Our expert says:
It's a pretty common observation, actually, and it happens because during exercise, your blood pressure rises slightly, and this happens because the heart is beating harder and faster, and when you stop exercise again, the heart rate drops pretty quickly, but all the other changes that happen take a little more time. So, blood has been sent to your legs where it is needed by the muscles, and when you stop exercise, this blood takes time to get back to the heart, and there's also this vasodilation (where the blood vessels dilate in order to accommodate more blood) and this also takes a while to drop.
So, it's relatively common, and it's not harmful at all, unless it continues to become a real problem affecting your life and you feel light headed very often.
Hope this helps
