Along with what the others said, if you are going to post a butt-load of information like that all at once, at least seperate it better into paragraphs or something that resembles infomation someone would want to actually read, rather than a cluster-fu*k of words.
I give you some credit b/c about half of it all was seperated into proper sections.

Squats with a smith machine are squats. You can argue that they're not as effective as free weight squats, but I would argue that they're more effective than leg pressing, extending, etc, for building mass.
Lighter reps and lower weight to get cut? Is that really still going around?
You know ten times more at fifteen than I'll bet 98% of the members on this board knew. Certainly, you know more at fifteen than I did at fifteen. Some of what you know is wrong, but you'll learn.
The first thing to learn is most articles in glossy magazines about lifting contain terrible advice.
Read the training articles here, and compare them to the article you read.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
I know you were just trying to be helpful, but most of the stuff in fitness magazines is garbage. Question anything that you read in those mags.Originally Posted by Maddawg

First, print this post of yours out and put it away somewhere. Stay on this site for a about a year then go back and read your post; you'll get a good laugh and be amazed at how much you've learned from the people here.
Second, please bitch slap your English/Writing teachers when you get to school tomorrow.
i can just picture someone putting the bar on their neck squatting... i know its already been mentioned... but HOLY SHI*! someone is gonna die that way.
I'm gonna have to go against what most of you are saying about squatting with smith (sorta). IMO in terms of size, squats on Smith will give identical results to regular ones. I'm talking about strictly training for leg size here. The Smith will not give you the full benefits of the compound movement (specifically lower back and hips I believe), nor will it increase your overall strength like a regular squat will. I also believe chris mason once said your upper body WILL get bigger if you squat. This idea would diminish if you use a Smith.
In conclusion, regular squats are overall > smith squats, however in terms of leg size solely, Smith squats are fine.

just a tip maddawg, less posting 'advice', more reading.
The guy apolagized and seems to have gotten the point. I say we let him off the hook for now.
