    Because it retricts movement to only 1 plane. You have to move your body with the bar not the other way around

    Imagine using a machine that looks like the prime suspect of every Chinese CCTV Factory accident.

    It's better for hip thrusts and bent over rows, but inferior for bench, squat, and OHP.

      Why is it better for rows? Curious since I love my barbell rows.

    Doing any exercise other than calf raises and maybe hip thrusts on the Smith machine is the ultimate dyel/ego lifter cope

    It's worse than free weights
    It's less versatile
    It's basically a DYEL guillotine (sort of based teebeehaitch)
