The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of shoulder mobility score on agonist and synergist muscle activation during shoulder press and to provide an underpinning fundamental to optimize the training effect while reducing the risk of injuries when instructing training in the field. The participants were divided to two different groups according to individual shoulder mobility score which is part of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). There were five participants in the score of 3 group (upper group) and six included in the group with the score of less than 3 (lower group). The results of this study revealed that the shoulder mobility score showed a negative correlation with the ratio of the left and right latissimus dorsi/anterior deltoid muscle activation in the concentric contraction phase (p
