Abstract: Purpose of this study total 60 sports male subjects were chosen from Tamil Nadu and Kerala states in India. There age range between 18 to 24 years as per the age proof certificate. The subjects were divided into 3 groups, Group I N= 20, Group II N= 20 and Group III N= 20. The group was equated and alienated based on their practice and regular play time, Group I 6.30am – 7.30am, Group II 3.30pm -4.30pm, and Group III 8.30 – 9.30pm. Stratified sampling, 3 X 4 factorial designs was applied. Following time fixed for data collection 6.30am-7.30am, 3.30pm-4.30pm, and 6.30pm-7.30 pm. Ladder and circuit training was given sixteen week, weekly three days. Shoulder strength was calculated by Push Ups test. Data was collected respectively pretest, mid test and Post test likewise for three group and three time in day. Data explored with the support of three way repeated measures ANOVA. In pair wise comparison between the group P = 0.896 group I and group II, group I and group III P = 1.000 and group II and group III P = 0.850 was notice. So that we concluded there was no significant difference between the groups, because all the groups are doing the same training and more over the intensity also same. In pair wise comparison between the pre test – post test P = 0.000, mid test - post test P = 0.000, and pre test – mid test P = 0.000 was notice. So we understand that training have significant in respective interval period in all groups. In pair wise comparison between the time 6.30am – 7.30am P = 0.000, 3.30pm – 4.30pm P = 0.000 and 6.30pm – 7.30pm P = 0.000. so we understand that rhythm have significant in respective times. Hence we conclude that the circadian rhythm was not chance by practice of different times in day because it is nature of our biological clock and the peace time or circadian rhythm for shoulder strength was 3.30pm - 4.30pm.
