    Why? The goal I am speaking about is not to make gains but to not lose muscle with minimal volume.

    Sure, beginners can make great gains working out for 60 minutes per week. I will not.

    I thought you were implying 2x per week 'only' worked for maintaining. It depends on the program, and such.
    I can make gains on 1x per week per muscle, lots can. Or you can train non progressively and 'easier' and maintain only on 1,2 or even 3 per week.

    Nope. Just that the average lifter can maintain with very low volume.

    I think your saying 'nope you didn't mean one can't gain with 2x per week' in agreement?
    but that average people just maintain with low weekly volume, right?
    If so, I agree

    Yup. :) But I would change the "just" in your sentence to "can".
