What are the different smith machines for sale?
Before you go shopping for a smith machine, you should know the different types you can find on the market: 

  • Commercial. This simple and huge smith machine type is common in commercial gyms. Its sturdy build and heavy-duty construction can withstand the effects of regular use in the fitness centres. It also has a plate storage station to facilitate convenience during the workout. Sometimes bolted to the floor, these smith machines can ensure your security even when it holds heavy plates.  
  • Angled. To ensure proper posture during squats, the angled smith machines slightly incline to one side. The angled smith machine will require you to lean more when doing the squats. This slight difference in movement will give better results and even target your glutes more efficiently. The benefits of the angled smith machines on the posture and the range of motions when doing the exercise are the reasons why it slowly becomes the standard equipment.
  • Selectorised. Aside from the different height selections on the post, this type of smith machine also offers ease of use when shifting between weight plates. Instead of manually loading the plates yourself, you just have to place a pin safely to start working out with the desired weight. The different weight-bearing style of this machine makes it less popular but unique.
  • Multifunction. Also known as a multistation home gym, the smith machine only comes as one of its equipment. The all-in-one feature of this equipment is a total fitness package for a home gym set up. The diverse equipment available will allow you to perform numerous exercises and variations.
  • Counterbalance. Like the selectorised smith machine, this type has a different weight-bearing system. The bars and posts of this machine are sturdier to ensure safety during training. Although you will have to load the plates manually, its counterbalance system makes it easier to add and remove a weight plate. With this type of machine, you will not have a difficulty of racking and reracking the barbell like the traditional rack types.

Each type of smith machine has its perks and benefits, but all of them will give you the same effects on the muscles. Get a smith machine for your home gym now. You can look through the different selections and have one delivered in your name right away!
