    Do you guys have any recommendations or hacks for setting up a bench squarely in a smith machine for bench press? I feel like I get it a little different every time and it hurts my shoulder. Thanks!

    Check if the seat is straight by lowering the Smith bar, thats the easiest way.

    Are you saying that if it fits my shoulder comfort needs, it’s okay to have the bench a little crooked Bryce?
