Apparently no maintainers here...
I am not yet to a maintenance plateau, but after this round I will be working to MAINTAIN the muscle I grow. After being off 6+ weeks, I am NOT happy with the muscle loss I experienced. So it will probably be 3-4 ST sessions per week. I seriously hope I don't have to do too much cardio other than fun activities I like: hiking, climbing, golf. I do expect I will always need to keep my food in check. I gain incredibly fast, so no more crap for me. Definitely know I need to stick to clean and relatively low fat diet.
Others have gone on to different ST programs, which I will also probably do just to have something to follow.

As I am still trying to lose since LiveFit, I am probably not the best to answer.

Have found that through trying different routines since doing it that I am figuring out I like working each group on different days. Currently am doing 2 days upper, 2 days lower (circuits for both), and two days of cardio. Like the sweat, but miss doing several moves for each group:( Have been adding to the routine, but it just takes really long and I don't get the kind of meditation I love from a routine. It's fun, but miss the other.

So for me to maintain I think I will need to back off on some exercise days or time spent working out. I plan on continuing with the clean eating and am having a hard time meeting the higher calories, let alone go up for maintenance. That is unless I hit a big plateau and have to mess with them. So far I am continuing to lose at least a pound a week with inch loss. Some areas have stopped losing inches but are showing more definition. Now if only I could lose some more on the waist and thighs. Pesky buggers won't drop fast enough:) Think I have another 15 pounds to lose, but who knows with the way weights change the numbers.

Interested in seeing what the maintainers say!

I've noticed that some people do another round after the first go. I began this program being only 5-10 pounds from my goal weight and wanting to get back into my size 8's. Well, here it is week eight and while I haven't dropped that much weight, I am able to comfortably wear my 8's I couldn't get into before; clearly I've lost inches and that's a huge success for me.

What has anyone done or can recommend for maintaining after the initial 12 weeks? I'm thinking I can do each muscle group once a week and keep up with the cardio 2-3 days as well as the clean eating.

I appreciate anyone's thoughts & input here emoticon
