Two training methods were compared to determine which was more effective in improving shot putting. The study was conducted with one experimental group using an isometric exercise program. The other experimental group trained with an isotonic exercise program. The investigation was conducted for a period of twelve weeks with twenty- seven subjects in each training group. Subject's ability to put the shot was measured four times during the investigation. The testing periods were the first, fifth, sixth, and twelfth weeks. Treatments took place three times weekly during the subject's regularly scheduled physical education class period at Northern Illinois University. The results indicated a significant increase in shot putting ability in the isometric exercise group and the isotonic exercise group. There was no significant increase between the two exercise groups.
