Speaking of Smith Machine.....


#1


Found this in my gym today, and I was just wondering how one performs lunges and curls on a Smith Machine.....


#2

They probably meant split squat.


#3

Carefully.


#4

I was thinking split squats too.

I could see doing curls in the squat rack. You could do a "Drag Curl" int he smith machine. I've done them before in the cable station and they give me a serious pump.


#5

My biggest problem with the Smith machine is that most people seem to use it out of the misconception that it's safer than freeweights.


#6

if you put the safety stops in place (using it properly) than it most certainly is safer than free weights dont ya think?


#7

I was amused at the "trekking around in search of other equipment" part, personally. Shoulda asked the 130 lb kid trying to shrug 3 pps on the smith to show me what smith machine curls look like.
