I used to have 2 benches, one flat and one incline with leg extension/leg curl attachment. When we moved, needed to get rid of one and we got rid of the incline bench cuz it was honestly kinda shoddy quality. (Got off craigslist years ago). So that kinda messed up my goto for legs and incline "accessory" stuff. Which sucks, but wife says we dont _need_ one and we would we only have room for 1 bench, and the flat is good enough.
Re: leg curls, i have been eyeing those monkeyfeet foot attachment ads lately. Wonder if they are any good. Cuz ya, just squats doesnt feel like im really hitting them enough, but its forced me to think of other stuff - and ive never really done ad/abductor work before, so its an insteresting change.
I can only do 1 arm flys with the cable attachment i have. I did try them, but just didnt feel right given the angles. Cable stuff is an addition to my squat rack and has 1 cable up top and 1 cable down bottom.

You got weight on those chin ups?

Next time I hit chin-ups I’ll go for a 1RM for you, Solar.
It’s also good to know what I have in the tank when I have to cajole the male athletes into adding more.

Having been at this for just a few months I'm kind of shocked at how little weight I've been able to push on overhead pressing.
I think I mentioned it before but I forget if anyone said anything.
I started by failing on an empty bar and for sure have progressed from that and the holidays messed with my schedule enough to deplate but I'm just now getting to 55lbs and you know, damn.
Is that just how this lift is?
I know every time I do it I'll be better at doing it next time but it's hard to shake to feeling of "wow I suck at this"

ah, cool! This video's a fine introduction to the movement, the one thing I take issue with is his description of how you're moving your shoulders back to get your back tight. It's hard to do with dumbbells because you're rolling back into your starting position (unless you have a dumbbell rack but those aren't common) and it's also inaccurate because you don't want to pull them straight back but rather back and down (sort of) but also there's lots of time for you to figure that stuff out.
