Overview

The Smith machine push-up is an upper-body exercise targeting the chest, shoulders, and triceps. It is similar in form to bodyweight push-ups, but with the hands on the bar of the Smith machine. This allows you to vary the height to increase or decrease difficulty, or to perform a mechanical dropset by raising the bar after hitting failure at a certain height.
