Whether you are just starting out on your fitness journey, or you are a seasoned fitness expert, a Smith Machine is a great piece of equipment for your home gym. This versatile piece of equipment allows you to perform a wide range of exercises, including barbell strength training that can help you build muscle and improve your functional fitness. Our Marcy Smith Machines include additional accessories and capabilities to give you even more fitness options.
What is a Smith Machine?
A standard Smith Machine consists of a vertical frame with a barbell attached to it within a steel track. This design allows safe vertical movement along a particular track. Often, weight racks are included with Smith Machines to store your weight plates.
A basic Smith Machine contains only the capabilities described above. However, we offer a variety of Marcy combo Smith Machines, which contain a number of other components, such as pulleys, a weight bench, and overhead bar. These models add a lot of variety and versatility in the types of workouts you can do and can serve as a Smith Machine home gym.
Benefits of a Smith Machine
The main advantage of a home Smith Machine is its safety. The unique design stabilizes the motion for you, making it safer to use alone (without a spotter). The absence of horizontal movements reduces the need to balance the weight, allowing you to lift heavier without worry. This can be especially useful when you perform movements like the bench press or when you wish to try and hit a new personal record on your back squat or front squat.
Another big benefit of a Marcy combo Smith Machine is that you can perform a wide variety of exercises on it. By investing in a single piece of equipment and a few accessories, you can bring nearly all the capabilities of a full gym right into your home. For example, a Smith Machine, along with a barbell, weights, and a bench will also allow you to perform a full strength-training workout, including back squats, front squats, bench press, and shoulder press. Some of our Smith Machines include a pullup bar, allowing you to do pullups and chin-ups. Utilize the pulley to complete lat pulldowns, triceps rows, and bicep curls.
Marcy Smith Machines offer many features that make them the ideal choice for every home gym. Like all of Marcy’s home exercise equipment, there are options for every budget, and you can be assured of the quality and attention to detail that went into designing each machine.
