BOMB PROOF® Plate Loaded Counter Balanced Smith Machine - The BP-52A American Made Counterbalanced Smith Machine is built using all commercial grade components for weight training in commercial facilities. Benefits of using a Smith machine include the use of safety catches and lock-out pins every 6 to prevent users from getting pinned under the bar on a missed rep, added balance and control during each rep, low starting weight and the reduction of joint strain all of which can be extremely beneficial to beginners, rehabilitation patients and even experienced lifters. The foundation of the BP-52A 90 Degree Commercial Smith Machine is built on a heavy-duty platform which includes 2 x 2 and 2 x 3 steel tubing. The 7 chromed power bar features a medium knurling pattern and has weight sleeves that rotate smoothly on bushings. The 45 lb. weight of the power bar is reduced to only 20 lbs. offering a lower starting weight for all Smith machine exercises. The Olympic bar travels effortlessly with the use of quad-linear bearings that slide up and down on polished guide rods which are case hardened for extended life and performance. Lifters can keep their weight plates within reaching distance on the included storage horns. Choose from several baked-on powder coat color options.
