The Smith Machine is a piece of strength equipment used in weight training that consists of an Olympic sized barbell that is fixed horizontally to hooked carriages on each side that move vertically along steel rails or guide rods. A smith machine can be used for a wide variety of exercises such as squats, lunges, upright rows, shrugs, chest presses, and military press. Because it has hooks on each side of the bar carriage, it can be racked at any position throughout the movement of the bar, allowing safer use for those who lift without a spotter.
