Hey, my name is Tony Candales and I will be posting some progress pics up here along with some summary diet info as I prepare for my pro debut on April 18th (currently 10.5 weeks out). I turned pro at the North American Championships on August 28th, 2014 and have been working on adding some clean size for the past few months. Please feel free to ask questions and I will be my best to answer/respond. Currently sitting at 204 lbs (5'10") which is 24 lbs heavier than my weight at the 2014 North Americans.

Below are some recent pics for reference taken over the last few days. Currently using a carb cycling diet to continue to lean out while retaining my size. Right now I'm 5 days low, 2 days (Tues and Friday) high.

Good luck to you brother. You are looking VERY lean for that far out. What weight are you aiming to come in at?

So you added 20 pounds (give or take) in the last 6 months?

Keep us updated...this section needs more updates and guys posting.

Just a quick visual update...this was post morning cardio. Feel like I'm getting tighter by the day, and I'm only down .5 lbs this week. I lost a lot of weight during my prep for the North Americans last year, and clearly lost some size. Not looking to do that again this time around, and so far so good. Sorry for the bit of blur, was shaking a bit lol.

Thank you sir. My last stage weight was 180...would love to come in low to mid 190s for this one. Sitting at 203.5 right now, so hopefully I can get where I want to be conditioning wise inside of that next 10 lbs. or so. Yes, I did a very clean bulk (literally started the day after Nationals) and just now started my cut. My average weight before competing was 190 though (probably ~8% BF), so clearly I was very low at that last show and those first 10 lbs. came back quick.

Looking great brother
Just be careful, you might be too lean for the stage and they will dock you down.

You're looking clean and big. Not a lot of people can pull that look off. They bulk and look all blocky. Keep it up! I look forward to seeing your final physique you take to the stage. What show are you doing? My pro debut is April 11th in Maryland. I haven't submitted application or set up any hotel or tanning yet but I'm definitely doing it : )
