The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Smith Machine Squats

    Hey guys i just got back from the gym for my leg day and I hit 315 on the smith machine for sets of 6 squats but obviously this is a joke. Does anyone know around how much the smith machine can add to squats and what do you think my real freebar squating weight would be? Thankx

    There are so many factors to take into consideration that it would be way too premature to pinpoint anything. Have you ever tried squatting with a barbell or have you been using a smith machine since the beginning?
