    I've got a incline/flat bench with quad extension/hammy curl attachment.
    Barbells. Dumbells. Pullup bar. Treadmill.

    I'm thinking a leg press/smith machine is next.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm worried about hurting my back with bad form with that stuff. It always feels so awkward. That's why I was thinking a leg press instead. Don't they work the same big muscles?

    Squat/power rack. Fuck smith machines and leg press. You fail to realize what a leg press doesn't work... jesus.

    I found this power rack with cable crossover, lat pulldown and low row attachments. Would something like that be good?

    Thanks for the help. I just started working out again, and my triceps are sore as hell right now from doing close-handed pushups 3 days ago. Pathetic... but I need to start somewhere.

    You should get a Bowflex bro, or maybe a chuck norris total gym.
