Learn about the benefits of Smith Machine exercise equipment

Smith Machines home gyms are some of the most popular pieces of exercise equipment, as you can perform a variety of exercises and motions without sacrificing form.

You will find one or two of these units in every gym, and more often than not it will be occupied by someone doing incline presses or squats. The Smith machine exercise equipment is basically a free weight bar that is attached to a unit that controls the motion of the repetition.

It can be used with or without a bench, and one of the benefits is you can move the bench to different positions and angles, as opposed to a regular bench/weight set up where you are limited. There is also a contolled, steady motion, and you are not able to cheat as you might with a free weight barbell or dumbbell.

Smith Machines Home Gyms - What are the options?

You have several choices when it comes to these exercise units.

1) There are stand alone units, most of which come with work out benches.

2) There are Smith Machine power racks that combine smith and squatting elements.

3) There are Smith combination machines that can include any or all of the following: squat racks, cable attachments, leg extensions, pullup/chinup bars, free weights, lat pulldown station.

The Smith is definitely one of our favorite pieces of equipment, as it can be used effectively for chest, triceps, shoulders and legs, as well as other muscles if you use a combination machine.

If you have the room, we definitely recommend you buy one for your home gym, as you can target so many different muscles while keeping strict form. Your best bet is one that comes with a free weight option...that way you have every exercise covered.
