  • Aging reduces rib cage contribution and increase abdominal contribution.

  • Aging increases end-inspiratory and end-expiratory chest wall volumes.

  • Sitting position might benefit patients who present reduced tidal volume.

  • Posture influences all variables of breathing pattern and chest wall motion, except respiratory rate and duty cycle.

  • Women present higher thoracic contribution to the tidal volume.

  • The bridge test with knee extension is a valid test to measure core stability.

  • Trunk rotators strength predicts the performance during this test.

  • Hip extensors and internal rotators strength can also predict the performance during the test.

  • Addressing these muscles might be important in people with poor performance during the bridge test.
