Tony Robbins Says His Workout Program Might Be The Most Effective Of All Workouts!
Tony Robbins workout program is very similar to Mike Mentzers, if you are familiar with with heavy duty training routine. Tony has the same idea, but maybe a little bit more intense. Tony Robbins has a morning routine, that includes meditation, a healthy breakfast, visualization of success, sauna, and an intense workout.
The theory behind Tony’s workout program, is that science has disproven the fact that workouts have to be long in order to be effective. Intensity can significantly shorten the duration of a workout. Here is a video that will give you an example.
Once again, the notion that for a workout to be effective it has to be long is easily disproven by science, Beck told us. For Robbins, he designed a daily exercise routine focused on explosive exertion and maintaining a very high heart rate, and it only takes 15 minutes — with just 10 of those minutes in the gym.
Robbins: “Your job is — you’re gonna push as hard as you can continuously and a timer will go on and you’re gonna have to hold and keep pushing as hard as you can until the timer’s done. It goes for five seconds. Go for it. Full tilt. That’s it! Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! Good, good, good! Harder, harder, harder! Come on, baby! Come on! Come on! Come on! Come on! Okay, let go. Good.
Now we’re going to leg press. Full tilt. As hard as you can. Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! Look at this monster! Look at this — go! Way to go! Nice job! You’re done.
Okay, this is gonna be core pull. Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! That one, not quite as good.
You know, you’ve done what — 15 seconds of exercise so far, total, right?”
Does The Tony Robbins Workout Plan Work?
That is up for debate. It definitely works in some ways, but it mostly depends on your genetics. The downfall of this type of high intensity training is that now fast twitch muscle fibers are being activated and worked. In order to grow muscle, slow twitch and fast twitch muscles should be worked to have maximum growth. These are not explosive movements, so the exercises do not maximize the potential.

Frequency of the workouts, and the speed of movement has been proven by latest research (by Dr. Jacob Wilson), that faster movement generates far better results than slow movement, or better yet, holding the weights. That said, you can give it a try and see what works better for you. For the most part, the Tony Robbins workout program is designed for people who just want to get as much as they can from their workout in the shortest amount of time possible. I am sure Tony wouldn’t recommend this workout to a professional bodybuilder or fitness model, who is trying to develop a physique that will win them a trophy. I would recommend this workout for someone who wants to be in and out of the gym.
