It is definitely easier to maintain than if you are looking for increased strength, muscle size, endurance....then yes probably more than 1x a week is a needed stimulus....however if you are at a level you just want to maintain or progress at a very slow rate...then you can probably get away with a 1x a week full body weighted session....during the week could be additional activities (hiking, running, biking, sled dragging) and general GPP using bodyweight (pushups, pullups...) to keep the G-flux (as Beradi would say) high....Diet also plays a huge role too in maximizing muscle retention. That's the name of the game....keeping muscle and burning fat all day....
