Ive just put my homegym together with the following items,
Techogym Adjustable Bench
7 Foot Olympic Bar with 2x (5kg/10kg/20kg)
EzyBar & Dumbells
From this I will be able to do a number of exercises, however I cannot do leg curls or leg extensions, Are they really required? I am doing squats, which I love! and I hit the calves as well.
Any comments welcome...
Nope, you don't need them.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Man, that stuff looks great. Like Paul said, you don't need extensions.
Not necessary at all
Nice equipment! There's no muscle that can't be trained effectively with what you have... it's the perfect basic setup.
Thanks for the comments guys
Man, that bench is so retro! Great power rack!
You don't need leg extensions and leg curls. But if you want something similary to them then just do Harrup curls and sissy squats.
