Lol. Most smith machines I have been around have bumpers you can place to stop the bar. Im betting that one does as well but the guy didnt use them. Anyway, dude is a retard for doing squats on a smith machine. IMO they are useless and only cause hinderences to gains.

^well both of you know not of what you speak so would have been equally as fucked as the person you just mocked.

That is not a smith that is a Scott smith, totally different machine and see how the vertical slide rail moves forwards after, that is to allow for the free movement "exaxtky to accommodate squatting" whereas a regular smith machine fixe's your position making that body's natural squat movement not possible.

I really feel for that young guy and hope he is OK, having had a back injury I know that could affect him for life now

Then why even have a Scott Smith machine. Why not just do free weights? Honest question.

Anyway if he used a cage or a squat station he could have set it up so the cage catches the bar if he lost control.

Obviously, he was recording himself. And I looked into similar Scott Smith machines and they have bars that go from one side to the other to catch the bar, if you set it up. He did not set it up.

Dont get me wrong, I hope he isn't hurt, but I go bact to my earlier statement, the dude is a retard.

It's great for heavy lunges and squats as you can't fall sideways

How?
Just like you do with the free bar. There is no difference.
You must be one of those gym noobs that thinks the free squat bar comes with some kind of special leg building magic. Lol.

I never seen one of those. It looked like it rolls off the rack..
So is the feet positioning the same as a Smith machine.. feet further out or like a barbell squat?

Just watched a recent video the other day where Dallas McCarver was using a Smith to do squats. I'd say he knows what he's doing. He said it puts more focus on the quads since he is glute and hamstring dominant.

Btw that scream had me busting out laughing.

Huh, I always stayed away because you dont work as many secondary muscle groups with it as you do with free weights. Ive never thought about using it to isolate lagging behind muscle groups.

One of my roommates was originally from Peurto Rico and his family moved to Florida when he was young. He was a strange fellow. He listened to reggaeton all the time, kept getting into fights at the bar even though he sucked at fighting (I kept a supply of frozen peas for him at all times), and kept going after highschool girls.
