Beware the DVT!

For the majority of people, being a dedicated eSports athlete means a lot of time logged in a chair. Unfortunately, this makes eSports athletes very prone to deep vein thrombosis or DVT. DVT is no joke, and for young eSports enthusiasts who log many hours a day in their chairs, even if they are very comfy chairs, can have serious health implications.

Google DVT and I’m sure you’ll find more than enough information to scare you, but it can be easy to remediate! A recent study based on over 1 million people identified that just 60-75 minutes of exercise a day can significantly “eliminate the increased risk of death associated with high sitting time.”

The video below provides you with some tips on battling DVT, but more importantly get yourself up and active so that you can be an eSporter for years to come!
