Abstract: By utilizing related questionnaire and self-report inventory, the authors investigated and studied the physical exercise behaviors of 8 208 graduate students at 171 universities in China, and by applying the factor analysis method, carried out factor analysis on 19 index factors that affect graduate students’ physical exercise be-haviors. The authors concluded that external environment factor, self pressure and health factor, as well as self mo-tive and ability factor, are 3 main factors that affect graduate students’ physical exercise behaviors. Starting with various factors that affect graduate students’ physical exercise behaviors, the authors put forward related proposals for improving graduate students’ physical exercise behaviors and promoting their comprehensive health.
