    The smith machine is my favorite pieces of equipment. I work out alone and sometimes DB's just don't cut it.

    Every piece of equipment has a purpose!!! Although, the most useless piece in the gym just happens to be the Barbell Flat Bench. ;)

    With age and injury...the Smith Machine has become a staple of my workouts. In recent years I have finally learned to feel my muscles work. I have found that I can very easily isolate not only the muscle, but a specific area within that particular muscle group.

    I try to include all machines and of course the cables and Dumbbells in my routine. I feel the double cable machine is 1 of my favorite for just about anything. And the smith machine is definitely the most important machine for when I'm alone. Although with my coach he doesn't give me much slack. Lol guy made me grow and eat correctly for past few years and I've progressed more than in past 2 years with him , then 10 with out HIM.

    If anyone having shoulder problems while benching, check out the slingshot. I have recently started using it, and it really helps my shoulders.

    Kind of an old thread, but for what it's worth I love the smith. I can really focus on contractions and get great mind to muscle connection going. Always get a deep burn. I also use it for arms sometimes. Drag curls and skull crushers, both take some getting used to but if utilized properly can target the muscle in a very different way.
