Smith Machines

When working out at home, Smith Machines provide peace of mind when lifting heavy weights without a spotter. All Smith machines allow you to set limits on the range of motion for your lifts and also provide a safe and secure racking system at the end of the lift. The beauty of the Smith Machine is that even if you can't complete a repetition, you can re-rack the weight at any point. This makes them perfect when you are working to exhaustion but want to remain safe. Read more...

WHAT GYM EQUIPMENT IS SELLING

From cardio or strength, to aerobic fitness or gym workouts, these are the products that are selling right now.

What is a Smith Machine?

Smith machines are great piece of home gym equipment. That’s because they allow you to perform strength training exercises without dropping the weights, very useful if you work out alone at home! Essentially a smith machine will allow you to work out at home safely lifting heavy weights.

Smith machines are great for squats and lunges, in fact for full body workouts. If you are wondering what they look like they are those giant racks with a barbell fixed to a set of rails.

How Do They Work?

The smith machine is a frame with two poles either side which the barbell is attached to. Weight plates are then attached either end of the barbell. And here’s where the safety feature come in, two hooks attached to the bar catch onto a series of pegs and lock the bar in position.

What to Look for When Buying

First off, check you have the room and a strong enough floor to take a Smith Machine. Not only are they reasonably tall, they are also pretty heavy - especially when you then add the Olympic Bar and weights to it.

Equipment-wise, check that the bearings allow for a smooth range of motion and won’t catch on the guide rods. Also look for several different stops and settings so you have more workouts. A really good machine will give you 15 or 16 different positions. Check that the equipment is stable and that the frame is strong and durable.

Which Smith Machine Shall I Buy?

There are so many smiths on the market it can be confusing where to start but we think that the following features are important to look for;

  • Heavy gauge tubing
  • Built in weight stacks
  • Gunrack front lift-off points for free weight training
  • Multiplle bar catches, minimum of 13
  • Linear bearings
  • High and low pulley cables
  • 7 degree cage track
  • Built in weight tree on frame
  • Maximum system weight limit of 600 pounds minimum

What Can You use a Smith Machine For?

Inverted rows, which are a great alternative to bent over barbell rows. The classic shoulder press is a good one for the smith machine, the shrug is great to work your trapezius muscles,  incline bench press and use the smiths machine bar at its highest setting and do pull ups.

Accessories

You may want to consider purchasing a bench, chin up bar and dipping station. This gives you even more flexibility on what exercises you can do.
