Practice is considered the most important factor in motor learning and consequently practice schedule is the most investigated factor in the area. There are two different types of practice: mental and physical. Physical practice is divided in fractionated, distributed and variable. Although the studies investigated different types of practice organization separately, in teaching or training situations all of them interact in practice scheduling. This review is organized in a similar way but at the final it was analyzed the possibilities of interactions.
