* P ≤ 0.05—Pearson’s coefficient.
General group: all the anthropometric variables presented moderate to strong positive correlations with the postural balance variables.
Male group: the variables of body mass and BMI presented strong positive correlations with the postural balance variables.
Female group: all the anthropometric variables presented weak to moderate positive correlations with the postural balance variables.
