Watch the special first-look teaser for the upcoming documentary – Robby Robinson’s Blueprint

Late last year, the Generation Iron Network announced production had began on the life story biopic of Golden Era legendary bodybuilder Robby Robinson. Now to celebrate the Olympia weekend, the first teaser trailer for the documentary, titled Robby Robinson’s Blueprint, has been released.  An iconic bodybuilder who has remained somewhat silent in recent years, Robinson is the first ever black man featured on the cover of a bodybuilding magazine. He is also well known for using his platform to advocate for equal rights in the sport.

Robby Robinson’s Blueprint will chronicle his entire life story from struggling in childhood and through his illustrious yet controversial career. It will explore the nuance behind his claims of racism in the sport – including statements made against beloved bodybuilding figure and mogul Joe Weider and the subsequent backlash. A complicated yet inspiring figure in the sport, the film will unearth the man behind the myth and muscle.

After making a name for himself in the sport, Robby Robinson surprisingly receded from the public eye. He would rarely give an interview to modern bodybuilding media outlets and is often left out of the conversation when discussing Golden Era greats. Yet Robinson’s passion for bodybuilding remained and at his current age of 76 – he holds a physique that would be the envy of many far his junior.

It’s at this moment that Tim Taylor formed a bond with Robby Robinson.

The documentary also follows Robby Robinson’s current life and the surprisingly powerful friendship he formed with Tim Taylor. A man who hired Robinson for a four day training session that led to Taylor befriending the notoriously private Robinson very late in his life. Robinson had never let anyone inside his private life until meeting Taylor.  

Through their bond and trust – Robby Robinson transformed Tim Taylor’s life and physique at 56 years old using a 6-Step Blueprint. This transformative fitness program was not documented until Robinson and Taylor trained together for those 16 weeks. Taylor documented their training conversations into a journal every day and created the 6-Step Blueprint in order to replicate them long term. 50 years of Robinson’s wisdom and knowledge organized into a training system like never before.

Taylor now believes bringing this 6-Step Blueprint to the public eye will solidify the legacy of Robinson – the final crowning achievement that he can leave behind long after he is gone. Acting as a sort of window into the true Robby Robinson – audiences will witness a never before seen side of the legend.

The mastery, willpower, and transformative secrets – Robby Robinson’s Blueprint – will finally be revealed to the world.

Robby Robinson’s Blueprint will be directed by Vlad Yudin (Generation Iron, Ronnie Coleman: The King, Dorian Yates: The Original Mass Monster) and produced by Edwin Mejia Jr. (Canyon Del Muerto, Generation Iron, The Hurt Business, Ronnie Coleman: The King) and Tim Taylor. 

The film is set to be released in 2023 on limited screens.
