Football players need to be able to breathe deeply and hold their breath. The level of play displayed by each player has a significant impact on the outcome of the match. Players frequently grow weary while comp-eting, which impairs their attention and leads to match failure. This study seeks to understand how exercise style and body mass index affect cardiorespiratory endurance. A 2 × 2 factorial experimental design was utilized in this study. Utilizing the Multistage Fitness Test (MFT) data were gathered. The VO2 prediction max from the test results was then compared to the MFT norm. The investigation’s findings were as follows: The fartlek training group and the circuit train-ing group have different levels of cardiorespiratory endurance. The fartlek cardiorespiratory endurance training group outperformed the circuit training group in terms of effectiveness. Cardiorespiratory endurance varies across people with high and low body mass indices. The tall body mass index group outperformed the short body mass index group in terms of cardio-respiratory endurance. Cardiorespiratory endurance is influenced by both the type of exercise and body mass index.
