Demand-Share Workshop: Harnessing muscle synergies to sustain robust athletic performance

Update: We have made some changes to this event to make it virtual. These changes have been made for attendees' convenience during the current pandemic.


We’re pleased to announce an upcoming one-day virtual masterclass delivered by Steve Sparks, first team physio working within the top flight of English football. You can book your place here.


The masterclass explores a demand share-approach, identifying how clinicians can employ movement assessment and retraining to spread the work across a range of muscle synergists rather than just aiming to make the frequently injured tissue ever stronger.


This presents an alternative approach to managing injury risk. Rather than exclusively focusing on the tissue at risk (e.g. long head of biceps), this masterclass presents the underpinning concepts and practical application of harnessing the body’s muscle synergies to sustain robust athletic performance, harnessing Steve's expertise gained working within the professional football environment.


The event will run from 1pm to 5pm as a virtual webinar. Delegates will gain access to two pre-recorded lectures on the Demand Share Approach focusing on the Hamstrings and Soleus. Delegates will then receive a login to the live session. The programme for the day is as follows:

1:00pm - 2:00pm Introduction & Review of Demand Share Approach

2:00pm - 3:15pm Demand Share Approach: Hamstrings

3:15pm - 3:25pm Break

3:25pm - 4:30pm Demand Share Approach: Soleus

4:30pm - 5:00pm Summary & Review
