This highly anticipated film, set to release on June 28, 2024, will be available on all major digital platforms, offering bodybuilding enthusiasts an intimate look into the life of an iconic figure from the sport’s Golden Age.

A Glimpse into the Life of “The Black Prince”

Robby Robinson, also known as “The Black Prince,” has remained a pivotal yet enigmatic figure in bodybuilding. Known for his chiseled physique and groundbreaking achievements, Robinson was one of the first black men to grace the covers of major bodybuilding magazines. His role in the seminal documentary Pumping Iron further cemented his status in the annals of bodybuilding history. Beyond his physical prowess, Robinson has been a vocal advocate for equal rights within the sport, using his platform to champion diversity and inclusion.

Award-winning documentarian Vlad Yudin helms Robby Robinson’s Blueprint, bringing his seasoned expertise to this comprehensive portrayal of Robinson’s life. The film covers Robinson’s journey from a challenging childhood in the racially segregated South of the 1960s, through his battles with sickle cell anemia, to his storied career in bodybuilding. Viewers will witness his triumphs at Mr. America, IFBB Mr. World, Mr. Universe, and Masters Olympia, among others.

“I’m very grateful that Robby Robinson allowed our cameras into his world after such a long time away from the spotlight,” Yudin remarked. “With this film, we not only shed light on Robby’s story, we also were able to preserve his blueprint for success for generations to come.”

An Icon’s Unexpected Retreat and Resurgence

Despite his early fame, Robby Robinson stepped back from the limelight, seldom granting interviews and often being overlooked in discussions of Golden Era bodybuilding greats. Nevertheless, his passion for the sport never waned. Now in his late 70s, Robinson’s physique remains impressive, rivaling men half his age.

The documentary not only revisits Robinson’s past but also highlights his present life, including his unique friendship with entrepreneur Tim Taylor. Initially hired for a four-day training session, Robinson and Taylor’s relationship blossomed into a genuine bond. For the first time, Robinson allowed someone into his private life, marking a profound shift in his personal narrative.

The 6-Step Blueprint

Taylor meticulously documented their training sessions, conversations, and Robinson’s teachings, culminating in what he calls the 6-Step Blueprint. This program encapsulates 50 years of Robinson’s wisdom, distilled into a transformative fitness regimen.

Taylor believes that sharing this Blueprint with the public will solidify Robinson’s legacy, providing a lasting testament to his contributions to the sport. Robby Robinson’s Blueprint promises to offer a rare glimpse into the mind and methods of a bodybuilding legend, showcasing the mastery and dedication that define Robinson’s approach to fitness and life.
