Abstract
This paper deals with the effect of increased training volume on forest land regarding performance in orienteering competitions, specifically long and middle-distance competitions. In order to test the modality in which the analyzed variables interact with each other, in the first stage, the correlation method was applied. We opted for the simple linear correlation coefficient of Pearson (r). The respective statistical significance thresholds were set to 1 and 5%. For the combination of independent variables, coupled with dependent variables, a graphical analysis was performed, continued with the regression method that consisted in the construction of some linear models for each of the two dependent variables (speed of completing the test distance), in combination with the group of independent variables and a free time limit. All models were tested in terms of validity, analyzing the variation (ANOVA) by means of F test and, as a result, we are dealing with valid models. Demonstrated by this study that the increase in training volume means forest land while lowering the volume in non-forest land has a positive influence on the final performance.
