We consider normalizing sequences that can give rise to nondegenerate limit theorems for Birkhoff sums under the iteration of a conservative map. Most classical limit theorems involve normalizing sequences that are polynomial, possibly with an additional slowly varying factor. We show that, in general, there can be no nondegenerate limit theorem with a normalizing sequence that grows exponentially, but that there are examples where it grows like a stretched exponential, with an exponent arbitrarily close to $1$.
