Weird Body-Filter: Two days ago I started to become abnormally aware of my own heartbeat.

The beat is not arrhythmic or particularly rapid, or abnormal at all, really, except for all of a sudden I perceive it to be much stronger. I have had random exertion-related palpitations in the past, but they usually subside with a few deep breaths. Potentially related: beforehand, on the day this started, I exercised my chest (bench press, flys, dips).
Other than this I am a healthy, reasonably-in-shape 23 year old male. What is going on?
