Abstract: Introduction. Becker's muscular dystrophy (BMD) affects mainly boys and it́s associated with sex-linked inheritance (linked to X chromosome), being characterized for a progressive and irreversible degeneration of the skeletal muscle, leading to a progressive muscle weakness, including the respiratory muscles. Objective. to make a critical review and verify what are the protocols and the results obtained through the respiratory exercises. Method. critical review of the works published in the last ten years (2000-2010). Databases searched: Medline, Pub Med, Lilacs, Cochrane and Scielo. Results. BMD is only included in some works. There is no consensus between the authors about the frequency, time and protocol. Final Considerations.
