Low Blood Pressure

I am a male, age 63, in good health.  I take only zocor, 20 mg/day and an aspirin/day.  My resting BP is 110/59 +/-, pulse 64-68.  But when I exercise hard (50 minutes step aerobics or 30 minutes bike and tread mill) BP only goes up a little for a short time to 117/62 or 120/63 and then it drops like a rock when I move to weights and cool down some.  It has fallen to 101/58 and as low as 88/52 which is what it was last night after high intensity aerobics.  When it is that low I do feel a little light headed and my arms feel a little heavy for a while, but no other symptoms.  Eventually it climbs back up to my normal range.  Should I be concerned about the low BP readings?  Thank you.
