How to Build the Hobie Wall

Items you need:

  • (15) 2X6’s
  • (8) 2X4’s
  • (100+-) 2 ½ inch screws
  • (4) 1 ½ inch screws. These are to screw into the metal poles so they won’t spin
  • (2) 1 ¼ inch Galvanized Rigid Steel Conduit (10’ each) (Don’t use light weight conduit or chain link fence posts, they will bend
  • 20 Metal Connector Plates (optional)


  • Height- 7’6” –You can build it taller of course, but I use the wall primarily for my upper body, and didn’t want to use my legs too much jumping to grab the top of the wall
  • Width- 7’ –I cut the 2X6′s down to 7′ because I wanted the metal poles to stick out 3′
  • The “crawl space” is 15”
  • The bottom metal bar (muscle-up trainer) is 5’6”
  • The top metal bar is just below the top 2X6 (the 2X6 helps hold the bar in place).
  • The “trusses” that hold the wall up, are 8’ long and just over 5’ tall. I built them to go just under the muscle-up bar so if/when I decide to raise that bar higher, they won’t be in the way.
  • Also, I put the trusses together with metal connector plates. It was a little more expensive and time consuming, but made a more durable/cleaner looking truss. A quicker and simpler way to put them together would be to do as you see in the two bottom left had pictures.

    Hi Hobie, so the metal bars are to do pull ups and what else you use them for…? thank you for sharing this machine…!

      I actually use the lower bar for muscle-up trainers (as I like to call them). I should have a video up within a few weeks showing all of the walls uses.

Make sure you read these instructions before downloading the file.

Extracting The File:
