Smith Machine + No Counterbalance

  1. Smith Machine + No Counterbalance


    My gym just got a new Smith Machine but it is only on a straight track. There is NO counterbalance that gives you a little spot. Has anyone ever heard of this Smith Machine? Has anyone ever tried it?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  4. I don't have a pic but I can find out tw name brand cuz I didn't really pay too close attention

    I think the point of it is to stay on a straight track so it can only go up and down in 1 direction and can rack it at any height. I think it's just for safety

    Read my last 2 sentences. If you haven't heard of it or tried it out than this don't apply to you. I wanna know has any1 ever heard of it or used it before. If you used it did you like it, what did you use it for, stuff like that.

    Just used it to assit with military press now.
    I first used it to bench cause I didn't have a spot....
    I've seen people use it for shrugs, and squats, leg lunges I guess, but I only use it for military press...
