Post contest: How many stay "shredded" afterwards?

Thread title, being ripped feels good, but staying shredded feels like sh*t lol. If so, for how long do you hold your condition? I'm slowly creeping back up to 10% for the comfort level and continuation of building muscle slowly before next comp in March.
