Default How soon can i go back to maintenance after PSMF?

Having finished a 12day PSMF, i did two refeed days on day 13 and 14 at maintenance and for the last 2 days i have been in a 500calorie deficit, is it ok to go back to maintenance now or do i need to reverse diet?

Thank's

So i have been back at maintenance for 6 days now and all i can say is HOLY CRAP at the strength gains i have made in just 6 day's! I have done full bodywork's outs every other day, i can't believe how fast my strength has come back,today i hit pr's on squat,bench, ohp and rows. I gained 3lbs which i am sure i water weight because i gained that within the first day or so and remained the same weight since. Can't wait to do another run of PSMF should be pretty close to my goal bodyfat% next time around.

Maintenance is a beautiful thing.

Its now been approximately 2.5 weeks since i have finished my last run of PSMF i went to maintenance within a couple day's, I have hit pr's ( gained on average 3 reps on bench, ohp and squat)ithese past couple of weeks which is significant for me as i am somebody who has been lifting for a while now.

This alone tells you don't lose muscle or any muscle you do lose is TINY with PSMF which was a big concern for me but i just wanted rapid fat loss and was ready to accept it, The fact that i am now stronger than i was before PSMF is actually quite shocking, and even makes me wonder if PSMF somehow causes some sort of adaption that makes muscle gain easier when you come off it.

I have been keeping progress pictures which i will upload after my next run as i am pretty sure i will be at my goal bodyfat % next time round so will share them when i am finished.

Adaptions may occur when fatigue dissipates. When on a diet, you train with a lower frequency and volume and you're actually "deloading" or taking a "training break". This in itself may allow your body to adapt even when calories are low. A lot of anecdotes out there showing similar things.
