    So you would make fun of me doing upper back deadlifts on the smith? I would make fun of you doing 300lb lat pulldowns. You have a max dead of maybe 425 and you are doing lat pulldowns with 300 for...

    How does the smith make you compromise your form? I think its more versatile because you can vary your foot placement and retain your balance and stability.

    I use the smith for doing upper back deadlifts, pulling the weight from right below my knees instead of off the floor. I love doing em that way once in a while. The only problem I have is with the...

    You guys act like if you went from free weight squats to the smith you would be using 3 times the weight. Get real. Truth is, the smith is much more versatile for building big legs. Try doing squats...

    I feel BB curls more in my forearm muscles that move my hands around, and when I do DB curls, my hands themselves become fatigued. I still think regular standing BB curls with decent form will work...

    I would like to see this same argument about lifting belts or knee wraps. Or better yet, chalk. When does a lifting aid become a lifting necessity? Some people might have smaller hands and can't grip...

    You guys wanna get bigger right. Why not use the straps to aid in your shrugs, rows, etc, then on arm day work on your forearms and your grip. Then you get the best of both worlds? I can easily shrug...

    Critique my Chest Routine

    When I work my chest, I flip flop starting with incline or flat, and then follow it up with the fly on the same bench I did my previous press. So for instance, I would do 3 sets of incline BB, 3 sets...

    I can row 225 on a good day for 15 reps with good form, a little momentum on the last few. But starting out, it feels like an empty bar. My bench is about the same. My best set with 225 was 15 reps....
