This is the type of literature that will be of great interest in the interim period, and it’s good news :).

Markers of muscle size and strength can be preserved in as little as 1/9th the work of a growth phase. For some, even 1/3 the work after a growth phase continues growth. The key is sustainability.

Our findings and those of others strongly support resistance training (RT) as a primary intervention strategy to reduce the deleterious effects of sarcopenia. We have demonstrated sustainability for up to 8 months with our 1-d·wk−1 maintenance dosing in young adults. Enhanced muscle performance was also sustained among the old; yet they seem to require more frequent dosing to maintain the muscle mass gains realized from RT.BICKEL CS, CROSS JM, BAMMAN MM.
