Hip Thrust at the Smith Machine

hip thust at the smith machine

according to you, doing hip thust at the smith machine is not completely wrong
since the machine forces you to make a vertical compulsory movement
while the movement of the hip by nature and curved / vertical
what do you think?

If you feel a strong contraction in your glutes the. It’s perfectly fine

I think that’s over thinking at it’s finest. Even Bret uses the smith machine for hip thrusts.
