DEQHave you ever purchased a new product and found that the instruction manual doesn’t provide adequate information? You’re probably not the only one. Across the county, fitness equipment and products are sold and marketed, but customers often need assistance in setting the equipment up. At other times, they need guidance about how to make optimum use of a product that isn’t available in the instruction manual.

At Power Body Fitness Inc., we care about your fitness journey and want to help you make the most of your purchase. With over twenty-one years of experience in exercise and fitness equipment for a personal home gym as well as fitness clubs across Canada, we believe we are ideally placed to help you derive maximum benefit from the fitness equipment or product you have purchased.

If you have recently bought the Smith Machine Half Rack Combo, here is how we believe you can make the most out of it.

The Smith Machine Half Rack Combo is usually purchased by people looking for fitness equipment that offers a full body workout and is an all in one space-saving machine. If you’ve purchased our #585A Smith Machine Half Rack with Hi Lat/Low Row Combo, here are some of the many functionalities that are not limited to the following methods:

  • Chin-up bars for executing chin-ups and pull-ups to emphasize the biceps.
  • Heavy Duty safety spotter arms with UHMW covering to protect bar knurling and designed to catch the barbell in the event that you miss a repetition.
  • Chrome plated gun rack style half rack provides easy squat work out with the convenience of adjusting J-Hooks and simple re-racking of the barbell.
  • Chrome Plated Olympic Plate Storage holders are meant to store any of your Olympic plates to save space and allow convenient use when performing exercises.
  • Counter-balanced Smith Machine bar that makes lifting the load more efficient, saving energy. Usage assures smooth movement with the combination of solid steel guide rods and linear bearings. Perform exercises such as bench press, squats, rows, deadlifts, etc.
  • Free swivelling bar with bearings allows for easier re-racking even under heavy load.
  • Dip attachment (optional) allows users to perform squats, bench presses, shoulder presses and more. This multi-grip attachment allows users to execute close or wide grip pull-ups. Mounts easily onto any exercise rack.
  • Band Peg attachment enables users to add progressive resistance during any workout. Additionally, they can also be used for storage or pull-ups.

Whether you’ve been using the machine for a while or just started, the Smith Machine Half Rack Combo is great for performing a variety of exercises that engage the upper and lower body for a full body workout such as bench presses, shoulder presses, squats, leg presses, pull-ups, deadlifts, calf raises, and many more.

However, if you’ve been struggling with keeping the equipment in line, what you may not know is that the bar consists of safety catchers that enable quick and convenient re-racking by twisting the bar forward. To free the bar, all you need to do is untwist, and the bar is free to use again. Moreover, the counter-balanced Smith Machine bar only moves up and down, allowing you to maintain stability at all times.

If you’re setting up the machine for the first time, it’s imperative to take note of the safety features and structure of the equipment. Keep an eye out for the safety spotter arms as they are meant to provide a safe and secure platform while using any barbells during exercise. There are also optional attachments that are part of the machine. However, these attachments do not come with the equipment unless ordered specifically, such as the dip attachment.
