Abstract: Animal experiment is an important research method and way in sports bioscience, developing with the constant development of sports bioscience. Animal experiment can well control affecting factors, be used to study either the comprehensive reactions of the entire body of the experimented animals, or local tissues and organs of the experimented animals in vitro, thus overcome various limitations of human experiments. With the appearance of new measurement technologies and the development of life science research methods, the duplicating methods, ob-servation indexes and research areas in relation to animal models for researches on exercise-related bone metabo-lism are constantly developing; researches on exercise-related bone metabolism will play an active role in prevent-ing osteoporosis and solving bone health related problems.
Key words: bone metabolism；animal experiment；animal model；exercise mode；overview
