Hello. I’m Ietore(＠ietore.jp).
Three years ago, at the age of 43, I had a gout attack and decided to get serious about my health and start exercising (muscle building). At the time, I was living in a regional city in a snowy country, so I built a home gym in the living room of my rented apartment for training purposes.
Three years ago, at the age of 43, I had a gout attack and decided to get serious about my health and start exercising (muscle training). At the time, I was living in a regional city in a snowy country, so I built a home gym in the living room of my rented apartment for training purposes.
All of the training equipment pictured was purchased through online commerce, so no matter where you are in Japan, it’s just a click away.
The centerpiece of my home gym is the Irotech Muscular Set R140, which was recommended online for newbies to muscle training; after 3 days of agonizing over it, I took the plunge and paid ¥120,000（approx 1,000USD) to buy it on Amazon without telling my wife (I’m thankful that I can buy it through mail order in rural areas).
I’m not serious about muscle training, so my results are poor, but I still went from 91kg to 85kg in 3 years, my body fat percentage went from 27% to 19%, and my uric acid level went from 9.4 to 6.8. After all, zero travel time to the gym and zero waiting time at the free weight corner is the best. As long as you’re motivated, you can train as much as you want without stress.
The good thing about home gyms is that you can take as many intervals as you want during muscle training.
You can do as much muscle training as you want when you have a power rack set at home. I seriously recommend it.
When I bought the muscular set R140, I was 43 years old @ Yamagata Prefecture, but now I’m back in Tokyo and doing muscle training at my home gym.
I bought the home gym set for 120,000 yen and used it for 3 years, so I believe I saved money over going to the gym. Continue reading “Irotech Muscular Set R140 (Power Rack) is a great choice for your home gym!”
