  • Vteam athlete Morghan King featured in FUEL

    VIRUS athlete Morghan King, 29, has awed the world with her impressive strength. The Seattle, Washington native stands at a petite five feet tall, and weighs only 109 lbs. We know not to underestimate her strength because King can lift up to 2x her own body weight. She has the ability to throw 220lbs above her head using the ‘clean and jerk’ move, a task not very many athletes (male or female) have been able to achieve.

    King competes in the lightest female weight-class and relies on a high protein diet to help execute her competition goals. King’s diet consists of protein, veggies, and complex carbs for the proper fuel to keep her going throughout her two and a half hour training sessions that are held up to nine times a week. Some of King’s favorite meals consist of zesty garlic meatballs; eggs, bacon, and avocado; veggie omelets; and some hot-cakes prepared with protein and other strength-building supplements.

    We applaud King for executing her workout routines, and remaining loyal to her diet needs while training for the Champion title at the 2015 Weightlifting World Championships. Morghan King, shares the importance of maintaining a balanced diet for performance needs in the video FUEL: The Diet of 105lb Champion Weightlifter Morghan King.
