Advantages using a Tsunami Bar:


Bar oscillates making stabilizing muscles much more active.
Can vary the force generated by the bar by the speed of
the movement.


How to perform the Seated Shoulder Press with a Tsunami Bar:

 

By performing the seated shoulder press with a Tsunami Bar® one has the ability to lift using maximal efforts with maximal loads and the ability to perform dynamic movements using submaximal weight (around 30%-40% of your max weight) without the need for chains or bands.  The lifter can load the bar and take it to the chest and press it like a standard model seated shoulder press.  However, the difference is the oscillating actions that take place.  Benefits include the ability to develop maximal impulse forces using submaximal loads.  Also, the ability to lock in the stabilization benefits while maximizing the motor unit recruitment demands through the central nervous system.  Another key benefit is the fat grip of the bar that develops grip strength along with grip placement to develop multiple leverage angles on the muscles and joint structures of the wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle.  This conditions the muscles and the joints to work together which enhances the performance of the lifter.  Once the lifter has mastered the basic movement patterns of the seated shoulder press using the Tsunami Bar®, they can significantly enhance the motor unit recruitment of muscle fibers to handle the impulse forces by reversing the bar before it touches the chest and bottoms out and at the top of the lift reversing the upward movement by pulling the bar back downward prior to the arms locking out.  This creates a waving action that puts the lifter in a constant concentric push and pull.
