All I can say about this is,.. Do which ever method
Works well for you.
But the smith machine certainly is not for pussies
Or for older guys.
I've done my flat and incline bench presses
On the smith machine practically my whe
Life. And my chest is very thick and well
Developed. It's actually one of my better developed
Body parts.
I learned about the smith machine from
A pro bodybuilder way back.
With the smith you're not going to waste
A lot of arm strength balancing the bar or
Going out of form. You will hit your chest more directly.
It's worked very well for me and I think
I have a better developed chest than most
Guys that use a free bar.
I use this machine for my front and rear
Shoulder press as well.

I use a Smith Machine on chest regularly. I have for many years. Squat on it also.

Its never about the tools it about the user of the tools.

Personal trainers are a joke, well most of them.
He is correct on that. They take some classes
And 9 out of 10 of them don't have the physique
Or experience to back it up.
It's almost like taking dieting advice
From a fat chick with a cookie in her hand.

Im a big fan of changing things up. If it keeps you on the weights and in shape do it.

I stole a VCR once and ran to the pawn shop with it. Its great for cardio.

Not true my brother. I put up a lot of weight on
The smith. There is no lack in strength.
The only thing you might miss out on with a smith
From a free bar is some arm strength from balancing
The bar, but I say train your arms on your arm
Day.

Actually it's very true bro it's like hack sledding heavy weight or even squatting on a smith heavy which I don't suggest then trying to walkout heavt weight free weight.

I saw 2 dudes take a mouthy BBer and shamed him in front of everyone in the gym he likes to talk crap around and impress because he can leg press a lot hack sled a lot but he acted like a bitch with 225 on the free squat having no balance to even do it proper, he shut up after that.

Both have their place and with needing surgery to reattach my bicep tendon machines have been a training saver for me granted I lost a ton of strength but I am making up for the with leaning out and looking better until I can really get at it hard again.

We have some understanding differences here.
First I wouldn't call the smith machine an actual
Machine even though that's the name of it.
It nothing more than a free bar with guides
And a safety hooks to secure the bar.
Designed to lift without a spotter. There
Is no weight or leverage assist. So you are pushing the
True amount of weight.
Sure you are not using "as" much arm strength
Because you don't have to put as much effort
Into balancing the bar but you are able
To direct more strength on your target area
Your chest.
You can't compare hack squats to true
Squats. Two different animals. And I also
Can throw up a lot more on my hack then
My squat. But I use the hack for other
Reasons.
Cash you use a smith machine, you have
One in your home. You want to chime in
On this one?
