Is the smith machine a meme?

Seems more dangerous and less efficient compared to free weights/barbells.

      The gym is such a meme if you don’t have someone experienced training you for competition
      Notice how most gym pics are fat girls and dudes dont post themselves because they don’t have a body
      I dont have the post but the gym is dudes that go because they think a girl will like them

            Arms are all that matter in public as they're really the only muscle people notice. Some people notice my calves as well but for whatever reason they're not as attractive.

      >this is what a 28 year old looks like
      yeah i missed out on life. it is what it is i gues i just give up at this point. im 29 and i still see myself as a kid. i guess i was kinda aware of it but i havent been consciously thinking about it that actually vast majority of people that i view as old are actually younger than me and the ones that i think look young and good to me are actually like damn near 10 years younger.

      idk im not even mad about it im more so just sad that i didnt get to experience life with a woman during the years they still look pretty. to all the zoomers out there, dont wait for the "right time" or to find the "right one". you need live with a sense of urgency, you MUST secure yourself a girl in late teens or early 20 AT THE LATEST.

        i had trauma in my youth & have this same feeling. i'm also a younger sibling which adds to it. fortunately I still look young and am pretty lean, but I'm 28. I lost my early 20s to alcoholism & it's mostly a chaotic substance abuse blur. I feel like I should be 23 still & I wish I hadn't wasted all that time being useless.

        sometimes life is hard. you just have to focus on persevering through the pain and growing from the struggle. grow your income & you strength, & you can get back some of the joy you missed out on.

        Godspeed.

        I had a trainer for a few months and he made me do these. This is such a dogshit terrible unsafe machine it's insane that such a thing exists. It's a guillotine you have to squat with terrible unstable foot placement

      smith machines is a physics error, it should be illegal to build a machine locking you in place with the possibility to slam your ass down with added weight
      dumb people who dont understand the risks will do something stupid, think theyre too cool for latches/safety pins just like most long term lifters avoid pins
      because they have good form and know how to drop barbells upon failure.

      smith machine is such a pointless investment, just do free weights, barbell squats.

      Damn if only there was a way to use a squat rack and bar with a system in place that prevents the weight from falling below a certain height.

    The smith machine is great for taking heavy movements to failure without a spotter. People are just moronic.

      I think most people who use smith machine fall into a false sense of security. They think that if anything goes wrong that they can just rotate and lock the bar so safeties are a waste of time. They just don't realize how fast things can go wrong

    I've gone to failure numerous times on Smith incline and Smith behind the neck press and all I need to do is rotate to the bar to get the handles onto the closest rung. Sounds like a serious skill issue here.

    I use the smith machine for hip thrusts and that is about the only thing I can think of that makes sense to have a guillotine device locked directly above your spine.

    But I am one of the only people to use safeties in the rack for incline bench n shit

    I will never figure out why women use this piece of shit to squat when a barbell+rack is better and much safer.

    It's not totally a meme. Some advanced lifters can and do make use of it, but overall it's such a dangerous piece of shit that gyms would be better off without it.

      thats pretty much it as much as it doesnt make any sense. somehow smith looks more user friendly than the scary free barbel.

      It's one of those things where it *feels* safer, despite actually being way more risky, like riding a bike on the sidewalk instead of the bike lane, or bouldering instead of top rope climbing, or getting fat instead of a scary form of exercise like surfing.

      Personally I think the warnings on the Smith machine should be more conspicuous and the safeties should be bright orange.

    I squat in the smith machine because the free gym at my place only has a smith machine. It's not any different than how I squat in a squat rack.
