It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Weird, I've never tried using the smith machine for bench..
Sometimes I use umm.. I think its called hammer strength or something.
But basically you're just benching the weight, you dont need to stabilize or anything.

Is the smith machine pretty much the same thing?

yeah dude have not used the smith machine in years, but i have been reading articles and some bb dude used it to just get his upper chest built, i don't do bench on it well like i do, i do really wide grip bench and guillotine bench on it, been doing that for the past month and half and i have noticed great improvements in chest like my upper upper like almost neck and were the top of your shoulders meet, i could find i never get that off normal bench or dun bells no matter how i did them . you should try it out

sounds like its a smith machine

barbell runs along sliders and has catch points you can rotate the bar to set it on. all you have to do is 100% push instead of focusing on stability as well.




i use it for bench if i dont have a spotter sometimes. and i use it for shoulder presses (in addition to dumbells) all the time. you can also use it as an alternative to squats if you arent comfortable with real squats.

Moreso than actual squats. Maybe I'll start using that for now, just in case..

Honestly I've never done leg press, but I used to do squats alot. Now I think I should lay off. I hate leg days though, they feel like a chore

Well, I used to mix my shoulder day in with my back day, but since I did deadlifts yesterday I sorta skipped shoulders

I just didnt have the energy for seated military press
