Would it be better to bench using this after a mild injury?

Trap House Boys Productions says:

Wait wtf you can move the seat thingy at mine the thing is planted to the ground

SPICY says:

Hey does anyone know how much the bar weighs?

JOSHUA HIGGINBOTHAM says:

i need to do a video on WHY NOT to bench on a smith machine

Gnawing through your thin skin says:

DON'T PUT MORE THAN 50 POUNDS ON IT! REMEMBER, YOU'RE AT PLANET FATNESS.

Joseph Faison says:

Thank you this really helped!!!

NexisFilms says:

Can someone please explain if it's better when the machine is at an angle or completely straight ?

that a lunk alarm i hear going off, in that sissy gym.

This is a Smith machine not a flat bench press machine. I just joined planet fitness yesterday and I am dumping it today. This is not a real gym. Do your research folks.

David Baker says:

Also, you should arch your back to really engage the chest. I find that bringing the bar down slightly above my nipple works best.

Darwin Theory says:

Does PF have freeweights? Im asking because aside from injury/rehab work, full time use of a smith machine is detrimental. Give your clients other exercises to perform that might strengthen the stabilizers. In 1.5 years my bench one rep max went from 185 lbs to 315 lbs using guess what? You got it..freeweights. But to each its own.

David K says:

Thanks, good video! but you should also mention that some smiths are angled vs. straight. Looks like the one you're using has the 7 degree angle. Lots of confusion over which way to sit when the smith is angled. Looks like you're doing it correctly. Bar moves from chest toward head as it rises.

Miri Nicole says:

I always want to use this machine but am always embarrassed to do it because I never knew how to. I'm going to try it tonight and not care what people think

Ambitions _ says:

How much is it with no weight on? The bar itself plus the resistance

BILL G says:

why is it i can do more weight with free weights then with smith machine, why is that, you think it be opposite

Karla Rebolledo says:

Can you please do a video on how to set it up for squats (:

Ralph Lugo says:

good info, I could never get use to it as far as adjustment on seat. That's why I never use the machine for benching im going to try this next time thanks.
