Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Smith machine olympic bars

    On average, how nuch do they weight? I bought a smith machine from Sports Authority for $150. I don't see the specific weight of the bar.

    I just don't count it. Since it doesn't really correlate with any other exercise I just try to add weight to it each time. Just record the weight of one side and know you have to do more than that next time. Based off what I've seen though, they can range between 25lbs. to 45lbs. depending on the machine's counter balance and stuff.

    Thanks for replying. I bought the thing because it was cheap and I can safely perform standing calf raises. I've never used a smith machine before so this will be different.

    They're good for somethings and it does sound like you got a good deal on it. Hope it works out for you.

    It's going well so far. I haven't used it on leg day yet....
