    I want to avoid putting that kind of pressure on my spine, at least at the beginning.

    understood, do you avoid deadlifts as well for that reason? did you do heavy squatting/deadlifting when you were in your prime and competing? I actually just hurt my lower back today after 7 years of training, heavy squatting, heavy deadlifting, and zero problems.

    im now debating eliminating heavy bent over rows, squats and deads for a while, if i do decide to squat it will be with smith. its just too strenuous, im 26 and am having back problems where i cant walk. you feel me, kev?

    don't do yoga if you have lower back issues, unless you tell them and they change it up accordingly.

    how about doing fronts squats with it? still no because it's a closed chain movement?

    I'm suspecting it being a closed chain excercise locking your body (mainly the spine) to an unnatural movement where as free weight squats allow the bar to move up more naturally.

    It's definitely a different feeling. I feel more stability for my knees with smith, but I feel an awkwardness in the vertical movement.

    i think smith is a fucking great squat exercise, it totally eliminates your back first off, and your quads get ROMPED, the key is learning foot placement and not being a dumb fuck about it. saying its a bad exercise is ridiculous, using low weight, focusing on going deep
