    Squats on a smith machine are designed to stabilize your core and keep your posture in correct position while doing a squat. They are also a good alternative to squatting in a cage if you do not have a spotter. I personally do not like the smith machine for squats. By stabilizing your core you are taking those muscle out of the movement. By keeping your body in correct postural alignment you are giving away a lot of benefits that your "helping" muscles could be receiving. So unless you don't have a spotter or safety bars, the smith machine is not the best option for overall strength and conditioning.
