Reverse grip bench press is excellent variation that one can add to spice up their chest routine. Form is very important on this exercise and if done carelessly then can hurt your elbows and wrist. Form is important not the weight. Go for higher reps on this exercise and moderate weights once you advance then shoot for heavier weights.
Versatility of the Smith machine allows many variations of the same movement with just a slight change in grip. I strongly encourage you to utilize that benefit to its fullest. From one workout to the next alter your grip on your presses from the standard overhand grip to the reverse-grip version. See how it makes your chest feel. Also be sure to include the standard bench press, as well as dumbbells, cables and machines to complement your chest training. Don’t get stuck doing the same moves each week.
