home gym exersices (new guy)
hi everyone i am new guy here and i would like to hear your opinion about something
i just bought my whole home gym what include :
bench, power rack , dips,push up,height/low pulley, w barbbell , olympic barbbell, sets of weight and dumbbells, and leg extension /curl attachment to the bench
so my question is if i can get big legs as good as i could in the commercial gym because no equipment as hack squat leg press and my curl/extension attachment arent full ROM becuase there is no cable only plates what mean i have no full rom
will happy to hear your opinion i really want to take the bodybuilding seriously and dont want to get my legs behaind .
sorry for the bad egnlish and ty for attention .

Use the bar and do squats and dead lifts.. Those two exercises will build you some nice wheels along with a strong back and core.

Leg ext and leg curls are good as assistance work after squats and deads. The most productive lifts for big strong legs are squats and deads and the various types of the two..

i just would like to know if i can get the result i could in commercial gym or at least almost same = yes/no

Results depend on what you are going to actually do.. You have options. A lot can be done with just a barbell and power rack.. Look up a routine like 5x5 stronglifts or madcow 5x5 both proven strength and muscle builders for beginners.

Ya like Capo said. Do squats and deadlifts for size. Those extensions and curls are good, but if you think your going to get big legs from those two exercises....try agian

i will never go back to strengh programs i have done madcow and ss got no muscle at all and now i am working with more reps more isolate and more exersices and get alot more muscle by alot !!,
so if i am doing normally program for bodybuilder just without leg extension curl will the result will get the same as if i has leg extension/curl ? = yes/ no?

If you want examples look at Olympic lifters, strongmen, and powerlifters. The bulk of their programs are squats and dead lifts with nearly no isolation movements and many are larger than bodybuilders.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

1.so do u have reason why very succecful bodybuilder like greena kai and others do alot of isolate for legs ?
2. are u sure powerlifter dont do leg extension/curl etc ?? really?

ty very much just dont understand something, i thought u cant shape the muscle becuase it is genetic u can just make it bigger or u can to rid of fat

I agree with the squat and dead school of thought, since that way, the body get developed in a chain of muscles way and nothing big gets neglected as far as ties ins and stabilizers. That is the situation I see by training the body in "parts" or muscles, instead of compound exercises. I also think weight bearing exercises using the entire skeletal structure, ie: the compound stuff, has a better carryover to strength, mass, balance and even looks.
IMO, use the iso stuff as assistance or polish if you feel the need.

What PaulBlack is saying (and I agree with) is to focus on the big compound movements like squats and deads.
You can't change the shape of muscles--that is genetically determined. Isolation exercises like extensions and curls can accentuate parts of muscles, but ARE NOT NECESSARY (you have heard this now from multiple posters).

Let's make this as clear as humanly possible:
Here's the deal: No leg extension, no curl, best legs you ever had. Destroy your leg extension and leg curl attachment and thank us later.
Like said earlier, the best legs in the world that don't involve insulin are weightlifters' legs, both in size and definition. Those guys hinge and squat, that's it.
Your legs WILL NOT SHRINK if you don't do extensions and curls. Your legs WILL NOT LOSE SHAPE if you don't do extensions and curls. Fact.
