About our Smith Machines
We’re fired up to help you discover more about smith machines and make a decision if you think they’re right for your goals. To cut to the chase, if you want to do barbell exercises (like squats, bench press, deadlifts) in a safe way at home you’re on the right track, whether that’s building muscle, power training or pure strength development.
The guided bar controls the movement in a vertical motion allowing you to ‘hook’ the bar anywhere along the uprights when you’ve finished your exercise. It’s perfect for familiarising you with complex lifts you may not feel confident doing, and allowing you to push your bodies potential without fear of dropping the bar or been able to return it.
This feature is what ‘defines’ the name smith machine, however; they vary in features massively. The most basic designs look and operate like a weight bench with a rack, they then beef out a little to take the appearance of a power rack. At the top of the spectrum, they look like the result of a power rack and a multi gym morphing together, we consider these the ultimate piece of training equipment, equipped with everything you need to perform almost any movement you can concoct.
Space is a huge consideration with these behemoths, it’s worth taking real time to consider the dimensions and the area you’ll need around them. For a piece of equipment that guides you into complex exercises and gives you the scope to branch out, these are phenomenal for the home.
We’re determined to help you lead an active lifestyle in a way that’s convenient and sustainable for you, we’d be thrilled to hear from you if you feel you need a little more advice. Chat with us on-site, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0345 1666 200.
