I don't do it very often to be honest, but it's just one of those league competitions we have on our wall at the gym. But to give you an idea of what I'm repping (completely supplement-free) with an Olympic bar at the moment,........18 clean reps with 100KG.Originally Posted by marriedblonde
120-125KG is my 10 rep max really (it's amazing how the graph isn't directly proportional LOL!!).
But when I use the SMITH though, it's because I often train alone and I need the safety for when the weight get's daft. I always have spotters for my very max 1/2RM lifts though.
Yeah, no pulleys or belts on OUR Smith, and the bar with gravity weighs a proper 20KG.
Definitely horses for courses yeah, and I know what you mean about having only one main thing to worry about with a Smith,.......ie. just push, but it does detract from my proper technique as said.
I try to line my ass up with a line or groove in the bench before I put the plates on, but every time I lie down to lift I seem to be an inch or so too high or too low
