Hormonal glands that do all this work are stopped during the cycle because steroids are a source of artificial hormones. At the end of the cycle the body is trying to return back to the original state before the steroid cycle but he is even pushed back a little, this means that happens a hormonal disorder, and if the sportsman is keeping the same training regime as while the steroid cycle he is loosing the build muscle mass.

When you finished the cycle your body has a high level of cortisol, thing that inhibits the growth of muscle, that why there is the need to change the training program in order to reduce the negative effect. During the cycle, the training program consists of 6 times a week, but during this period you need to recover and you may go to the gym only twice a week fo a short time but do heavy training, this means basic exercises and each group of muscles should be worked only once a week.
