    no smith machine has correct and proper ROM doug..the terms are anti-descriptive


  2. I had used a smith for squats and for bench so I could go heavy without a spotter, but I decided to do without to benefit my body more

  3. Smith machines can pay dividends, in regards to isolation techniques. OTOH, you won't get the core benefits associated with free form lifting, where supporting cast muscle groups are more involved. Each serves a purpose and can be beneficial when used correctly.

  4. Smith is only good for certain things. I don't like it much for bench but it is great for JM Press. Also good for Shoulder Press lockouts again that is a partial movement. Smiths aren't too bad for squatting with correct foot placement but as far as using for bench pressing. I agree with the others it can cause some serious shoulder issues. Especially if they are already problematic.

    That intense FINAFLEX stack described earlier is close to something I ran earlier this year. I got great results, although the dose was above the recommended and my personal experience was no sides to speak of at all. If it is run I would love to follow the log on it.

    The same thing you are attempting to hit using incline smith can be achieved through different exercises. Look into different variations of the hex press, and you can also try reverse grip barbell bench. Just a couple of suggestions.

    Good stuff!

  8. I never use a smith machine, at all - I do not own one, and train in my garage
    I have a safety cage rack, this serves all of my purposes (ie safety) as I train alone as well
    free weights and dumbbells, FTW!

  9. back later today and I'm excited. would it be wise to do traps on back or shoulder day.

    typically is done on shoulder days by most, really does not matter in the grand scheme of things, depending on how your particular program is set up/convenience of where to place it should be most logical & beneficial for your own goals

    notes: decided to try the rack pulls as a finisher type movement but by that point i was tired it just did a number on my hands.
    and being short as i am 5'6" starting point was above my knee, may have to add something under me, or i go back to regular dl at beginning of workout

  12. I like traps on shoulder day. I'm working the delts so might as well work the traps too.

    what do you mean by start?

    Starting DB press weight at the start of the log? How much have you improved on that exercise?

    from day 2
    db shoulder press: 40x6,50x7, 50x6, 50x6, 45x7, 35x12, 35x10

    but i did bench prior to it, but now im going to a regular 5 day split and see how that works for me.
    so far, it did help with the amount my shoulders could handle. and less shoulder imflammation for now.

  20. Arm day tmr, somewhat excited, going to destroy them and put stress upon them that they have to grow
