We develop the parameterized post-Keplerian approach for class of analytic f (R)-gravity models. Using the double binary pulsar system PSR J0737-3039 data we obtain restrictions on the parameters of this class of f (R)-models and show that f (R)-gravity is not ruled out by the observations in strong field regime.
