    Works a bunch of muscles at once, so it makes your workouts much more efficient. The motions also apply directly to many real-world situations.

    That seems to be why a lot of people do them...

    You don't need them to build a good body, but it makes it easier.

    Down this road, in a gym far away,
    a young man was heard to say,
    "no matter what i do, my legs won't grow"
    he tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses , too
    trying to cheat, these sissy workouts he'd do.
    from the corner of the gym where the big men train,
    through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain
    where the noise is made with big forty fives,
    a deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees.
    a very big man with legs like trees. laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack
    chalking his hands and monstrous back,
    said, "boy, stop lying and don't say you've forgotten,
    the trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN'. "

    The young man looked fit, thick through the chest. Bulging biceps and triceps. Washboard abs and the rest.
    He strode a bit closer. To my shock and surprise!
    I saw his torso supported, by two spindly thighs!
    He walked with confidence and no apprehensions,
    as he performed his first set of leg extensions!
    I watched this debacle, watched his face turn askew.
    Watched him scream in mock agony, 'til his set was all through.
    T'was then I approached him and extended my hand.
    "I don't mean to disrupt you, but excuse me, young man!
    I was admiring your work. Man, that set was nice!
    But I wonder if I might offer some helpful advice?"
    He spoke not a word. Simply nodded his head.
    I could read his expression. He wished I were dead.
    "Get off this contraption! You're wasting your time!
    Go to the squat rack! You can see....there's NO line!
    You don't need machines! You don't need to look far!
    Just load on the weight and get under the bar!
    Unrack that sucker! Squat ass to the floor!
    Grab some big plates, and load on some more!
    Hear the iron rattle as you pound out each rep!
    But please, my friend! YOU must take the first step!
    Come with me now! To the squat rack we'll go!
    Together we'll get those tiny pegs to grow!"
    He studied me hard. He seemed in a haze.
    No words came! He stood in a daze!
    'Say SOMETHING, son! Speak to me, PLEASE!'
    'I can't do it!', he screamed! 'I have bad knees!'

    If you sit back properly and learn how to squat with a box, your knees will never bother you.
