Smith is no where near 385lbs with plate weight. Stabilization is completely negated. Do a max bench/squat and see how much more you can do on the smith. But I still don't believe you can pump out a single rep of 8 plate military press, bitch machine or not. But prove me wrong homie, prove me wrong. In fact, i'll settle for a 305 OHP.
