For me bulking, maintaining, or cutting is more a function of diet than a particular training style. Personally, my bulking days are pretty much over, so I'm primarily concerned with losing fat (and maintaining that fat loss level) more than anything else. One thing I've realized over the years is that the human body has a lot more fat on it than we realize. In other words, it seems like the more I lose, the more I see that I can lose. Of course, with each drop of a few pounds, getting the next few off seems to get even harder until you get to that point where your body is fighting back with everything it has to keep you where you are at no matter what you try. I guess that's why you rarely ever see truly ripped people at the beach. The human body just does not want to be that way because it feels like starvation.
