Principles of Maintaining Muscle: CoronaGains

Just got shutdown here in Australia. I may bite the bullet on a pair of adjustable dumbbells up to 50-60kg/ 130lbs.

Anyways I reckon I can put together decent work for all muscle groups. I feel like my top end squats/deadlift strength will suffer but I’m aiming to not lose muscle during this period (dunno how long) so am looking to clarifying training principles for muscle maintenance:

So is it as simple as doing sufficient volume, sufficiently heavy load and close enough to failure?

One area I’m concerned about is my hip hinge pattern /glutes+hams. I could do Romanians with the two dumbbells I guess
