Counter-Balanced Smith Machine (Black Shroud) | Legend Fitness (3124) - Legend Fitness is known in the fitness industry as producing the most heavy-duty, over-built strength equipment on the planet. The 3124 Counterbalanced Smith Machine is no exception. Each frame is fabricated right here in the USA from 3 x 3 x 11 gauge steel that is then protected from the elements with DuPont electrostatic powder coating that resists scratches, dings and corrosion. This heavy-duty frame structure allows any user of any strength level to load up the bar to their maximum weight without ever having to worry about structural integrity. Heavy-duty Olympic bar is rated at 1,500 lbs. and knurled for a sure grip and then counterbalanced to a starting weight of only 25 lbs. 3,500 lb. capacity aircraft quality cables and pulleys keep the bar firmly on track while it glides effortlessly on the polished steel guide rods and linear bearing system. And the 5 degree path of motion allows for more natural movement when performing heavy pressing and squatting lifts.
What exercises can be done on a Smith machine? A Smith machine can be used to supplement or replace free weight training with bars and dumbbells. While some people may do this to simply add variety to their training and stimulate growth, others find that a Smith machine allows them to perform barbell exercises with less pain to the joints and lower back. When exercising on an angled Smith machine, youll need to be mindful of proper body alignment with the angle of the guide rods, which in the case of the 3124 is a 5% angle. For example, when executing a Smith machine squat youll want to bring your toes forward just enough so that your back remains totally straight throughout the movement and your body tracks along the same 5% angle. Although this may feel weird at first, especially when compared to barbell squats, youll soon get used to it and it will seem natural in no time.
Upper body Smith machine exercises often include the use of a decline, flat, incline or upright utility bench for working the chest, shoulders and triceps with various pressing movements. Bent over rows are a great way to thicken up the back and work well with the design of the Smith. Training legs on a Smith machine better isolates the quads and provides an unbelievable burn. Squats, front squats, lunges and even calf raises with a calf block are some simple but extremely effective lower body Smith machine exercises.
