Smith machine box squat

The Smith machine box squat is a machine-based exercise targeting the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. The Smith machine mimics a barbell but provides more stability. This movement can be programmed in low reps for strength or power or higher reps for muscle and strength endurance. It is often performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of a full-body or lower-body workout.

Benefits

  1. Adds size and strength to the quads, glutes, and hamstrings
  2. Can squat heavy weight without risk of getting pinned beneath the bar
  3. The bar moves on a track making it easier to get into position and control
