ROSIE Trimble has returned from another bodybuilding competition with a podium finish, making the hard work of coming back from a lay-off well worth it.
Trimble’s second competition after about 18 months off was the International Natural Bodybuilding Association All Females national titles in Melbourne on June 23.
Competing in the masters physique, she was competing against five other women and placed third.
While Trimble thought she looked a lot better than when she competed at Wagga in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association NSW titles in April, she put much of her success on the day down to a change in routine.
“I felt more confident when I got up there,” Trimble said.
“I ate more on the day. I had a big muffin, strawberry and white chocolate. The biggest one I could find. I had a normal breakfast, but then didn’t eat the muffin all at once.
“I think it just helped me because it was going to be a long day. I think that muffin hit the spot.”
Trimble placed behind two competitors who finished top-two last year, but there positions were reversed in 2013.
“I was just lacking in the shoulders,” Trimble said. “I have to work on my shoulders.”
There were 200 women all up on a long day of competition. Trimble arrived at the venue at 3pm and after thinking she would be competing at 3.30pm, didn’t hit the stage until 6.30pm.
Trimble will now have a short break, before deciding on her next competitive move.
“We’ll see what my condition is like when I get back from holidays,” she said.
“If I haven’t put too much weight on, I wouldn’t mind doing one at the end of September or October.”
ROSIE Trimble competes at the International Natural Bodybuilding Association All Females last month.
