The effects of downhill and uphill exercise training on osteogenesis-related factors in ovariectomy-induced bone loss

Yun-Seok Kang, Chun-Ho Kim, Jeong-Seok Kim

Recent evidence suggests that regular exercise training plays a decisive role in maintaining homeostasis and promoting muscle and skeletal formation. However, the effect of downhill exercise training on osteogenesis-related factors is not well understood.

Thus, we investigated the effect of uphill and downhill training on ovariectomy (OVX)-induced bone loss. After ovary removal, the exercise method performed included uphill (16 m/min, +15째) and downhill training (16 m/min, 15째) for 60 min/day and 5 days/week, respectively, for 8 weeks.

These results suggest that the uphill and downhill exercise types appeared to positively affect the expression of osteogenesis-related factors along with bone density and microstructure. Particularly, the downhill training has more beneficial effects on the maintenance of homeostasis during bone formation.
