Precor Icarian Linear Counter Balanced Smith Machine – No Angle!

Precor Icarian linear counter balanced smith machine.  This is one of my personal, favorite smith machines because it doesn’t have any angle or slant.  The majority of smith machines these days, have a silly 10 or 15 degree angle and they are horrible.  This is a current model Precor, based on the classic Icarian line.  With no angle, the tension is actually on the muscle the duration of the movement, throughout the entire rep.  This machine has silky smooth linear bearings and is built like a tank.  Built in safeties make it a great choice when training alone.  The smith machine is just as effective as free weights, and you’re far less likely to get hurt.
