The findings show that a 12-minute Tabata session for 12 weeks, which included repeated rounds of body-weight and plyometric activities meets physical fitness test measurement standards in the Philippine Military Academy for improving cardiorespiratory endurance. Tabata exercise was found to be effective in improving body mass while providing the most benefits in the shortest period.
