As a beginner who wanted to do some muscle training, I bought the Irotech power rack set. The set includes a rack, bench, shaft, and a set of weights, so you can get serious muscle training from the day you arrive.
I recommend the R140 masculine set.
As a newbie to muscle training, the first equipment I bought was a Power Rack Set and a Joint Mat. This cost me 120,000 yen. Considering that I would have to go to a gym with a monthly membership fee of 8,000 yen for 24 months, the home gym is surprisingly affordable.[/caption]

I’ve installed a power rack in a 10-mat room, but you can install a power rack in a 4.5 – 6 tatami mats room. There is also the option of using a half rack.

A mirror is an essential part of checking your muscle training form. It’s also essential to keep you motivated to check your pumped up form. Surprisingly, it’s easy to install with a DIY project.
