How To: Smith Machine- Bench Press


What’s going on Nation? I’m going to show you how to do a bench press on a Smith machine Now the first thing you want to do is you want to line up your bench So it’s in the middle of the machine then it’s pushed back far enough So when you bring the bar down it goes right across your nipple line, okay? So what I’m going to do is I already set up my bar is I’m going to pick it up like this Now when you lift on the smith machine you get a turn the bar to unlock the hinges Get a nice wide grip like you would on a normal bench press And then bring it down you want to make sure just make sure so it comes down in the right position right now It’s going to jack up on my shoulders, so I just slide back a little more like this That feels much better. I mean just barely break 90 degrees in this exercise and push straight up Bring it down straight up just like this the Smith machine is great because it’s going to take a Lot of the pressure out of your shoulders because it’s supporting itself and you can do a little bit more weight on here So it can help you break some barriers too, and also if you don’t have a spotter You can utilize the tabs Put that right here So if you drop it it’ll just bounce and then you won’t hurt yourself So that’s how you use the smith machine for a chest press Hope you guys enjoyed that give it a shot and as always more good stuff coming soon. See you guys
