The Marcy SM600 is a great example of a smith machine that features a bench that can be removed if necessary to perform movements other than overhead presses and bench presses, such as shrugs or deadlifts.
As well as the fact the bench can be separated from the main smith machine, the weight bench that comes with the Marcy SM600 smith machine can be adjusted to suit whichever exercise you are looking to do, from decline to incline and be changed very quickly so as not to waste time between sets if you are looking to superset one form of bench press with another.
Safety features with the Marcy SM600
As well as the features that come with the bench, the main smith machine has been designed with safety in mind and has a safety catcher on each side to prevent the bar from dropping below a fixed point, while the ultra glide bushings mean the pressing arm moves smoothly throughout the pressing movements which helps you be more confident that the weight you load on the bar is the real weight you are moving and not being added to from any resistance on the movement of the bar.
