A Smith machine is commonly used for weight training. It includes a barbell that is placed between steel rails and can be moved vertically. Smith machines can be used to perform lateral pull-downs, bench presses, squats, deadlifts, and other weightlifting exercises. It often features a frame that can be adjusted into multiple positions. A Smith machine may be able to support up to 800 lbs. Smith machines may include safe locking grips to help you keep a barbell in place during a workout. Smith machines come in various sizes, and a machine can typically be placed in a home exercise area.
