I am not entirely sure I understand your question here. If you are referring
to why hydrogens are constrained by shake. This is to allow the use of
longer timesteps since it removes the highest frequency oscillations in the
system. I would suggest doing a literature search on 'SHAKE' or following
the references to it in the AMBER manual.
All the best
