    benching on a smith machine?

    This is kind of related to the "squat on smith machine" post from earlier today...

    I realize that barbell benching is better than using a smith machine, but I think for variety purposes it's OK to use a smith for bench/incline/decline presses once in a while (maybe 20% of the time). Am I correct in thinking this?

    Thanks,

    -Josh
