Smith Machine Squat - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Set a barbell on a Smith machine at a height that’s above your shoulders. Load it with weights according to your preference.

Step 2

Step under the barbell and place the handle across the back of your shoulders.

Step 3

Hold the barbell with your palms facing forward and with both hands on your sides. Lift it off the rack by using your legs to push as you straighten your torso.

Step 4

Position your legs shoulder with apart with your toes slightly pointed out. Keep your head up at all times and avoid arching your back. This is your starting position.

Step 5

Slowly lower the bar by bending your knees until your upper leg is perpendicular to your calves. Inhale as you do this.

Step 6

Raise the bar slowly by pushing the floor with your heels. Continue until you’re back to the starting position.

Step 7

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
