I did yesterday's WOD using the Smith machine as my gym has no squat racks and I wouldn't feel safe or comfortable trying to increase weight without spotters or support. Later that day I read in the comments section that using the Smith machine for back squats is ill advised. Since my gym doesn't have a squat rack and I'm not going to be rigging up anything in my home garage to simulate one, would you recommend using lighter weights with more reps or some other substitution?
