Strength Training with Smith Machines
Smith Machines are useful tools in helping to build muscle and increase overall strength. Commercial Smith machines are built to be heavy-duty and much more simplistic. These versatile and sturdy designs are built to stand up to the most intense strength training routines. Smith machine exercises such as the bench press and squat are great mass builders and can be used to supplement free weight exercises with Olympic bars. The Smith machine also has built in safety mechanisms such as adjustable safety arms and multiple lockout points keeping the trainee from getting pinned or injured in the event of a missed rep.
