i like the smith machine just fine, it works good
I think like other machines, the smith machine has its place. Is it just has good as BB or DB? HELL NO! could it be used effectively for exhausting a muscle group? Yes. Your stabilizing muscles can only take so much abuse, at a time. So following up a BB or DB exercise, you could overload or finish off the muscles using the smith machine.
I was reading yesterday, that during his pre-contest training, Cutler performs his deadlifts on the smith machine. It helps take his hips and stabilizing muscles out of play, and allows him to gain a better contraction, focused on his lower back. Which makes sense.
You pound your body with squats, and really deliver a finishing blow with smith machine Hack Squats.
The Smith Machine exercises are basically like an isolated, compound exercises. Are isolation exercises, as effective as compound movements? NO, but they do have their place.
cutler is a beast
