    I love leg curls. Not only do I love leg curls but my programming prescribes them on a fairly regular basis; a couple of times a week sometimes (Hybrid Performance Powerlifting; for any of you wondering.) To put that another way, I want and need to be able to do leg curls in my garage gym.For a couple of years now I’ve been stuck using a Powertec Bench with the leg attachment for my hamstring curls and the occasional set of leg extensions.

    If you’re serious about working out at home, then you’re going to want some form of a power rack or squat rack in your garage gym in order to get the most out of those workouts.
