If you really want to do these movements, then you could use regular bench flyes for the cable crossovers, sitting leg curls, and you don’t need a machine for sissy squats, just something to hang on to for balancing.

sitting leg curls are also not an option would SLDL’s be best? and for the sissy squats i guess i misunderstood the way they are done so ill try to find a video via google thanks for the help.

Christ almighty thats a ton of exercises for one day…

I got eyesoer just eeing your routine. focus on the basic free weight exercises instead.

Looks like overkill. If your a beginner stick to compuond lifts (Deadlift, squat, bench, row, snatch,…ect). Once you reach about 180-200lbs then worry about throwwing in a couple isolated moves (curls, extension…etc)
