Study Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine if two schedules of mental practice frequency (one-a-day or five-a-day), independent of any physical practice, would significantly improve performance of a given gross motor skill task in comparison to a control. Additionally, the purpose was to determine if one of the two schedules of mental practice would improve task performance to a greater extent than the other.
