The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of Ballistic six exercises and free weight exercises on improvement of shoulder power of cricket players. A total sample of 50 cricket players were taken in the age group of 17 to 19 years. The height, weight and BMI were measured at the beginning of the study. The shoulder power was measured using medicine ball put test at the beginning of the study and as well as at the end of 12 weeks of intervention. The subjects were divided into 2 groups in which group A were given ballistic six exercises for shoulder using elastic tubes and medicine ball and group B were given resisted exercises for shoulder using free weights using dumbbells. The result of the study showed that there was significant improvement in shoulder power in both the groups after 12 weeks of intervention. However group A (ballistic six exercise) had better improvement than group B (free weight exercise) The study concludes that ballistic six exercises can also be used for improvement of shoulder power of cricket players.
