The Tsunami Bar™ (US Pat. No. 7,951,051 and other patents pending) is a flexible barbell that is made from a combination of special composite materials that provides an extraordinary training stimulus. This stimulus is based off two factors that are know as amplitude and oscillatory actions.
The dual action of the bar that includes amplitude and oscillatory movement creates a rolling wave that stimulates the sensory receptors, which are scientifically known as proprioceptors. When these sensory receptors are stimulated at a higher degree than a standard barbell this allows for greater muscle activation and stabilization. In fact, EMG testing data suggests that muscle activation is approximately 20% greater, and that stabilizer muscles are three times more active using the Tsunami Bar compared to a standard barbell.
All lifts performed on a standard barbell can be performed with the Tsunami Bar – and then some. Today’s athlete is looking for a power reservoir inside them that they can pull from at any moment in time and be fit to perform any task that is thrown at them from a power, speed, conditioning and functional standpoint. The Tsunami Bar will help build this power reservoir to meet the needs of a modern-day athlete. What separates the Tsunami Bar is that it comes to life, not based on weight added to the bar, but according to forces and movements that are used against the bar. This is what makes it unlike any training bar or device out there.
