1. Editor's Note

Well, some of the holiday hustle will have ended, and now it's time to recover a bit...before the New Year's festivities. And what better way to recover than to read a PE Tips of the Week Newsletter! So cozy up in front of the fire with your laptop (and wireless internet connection), and settle in for a relaxing read (hey, it's better than shoveling snow).

2. From the Web

While figure skating isn't part of the curriculum of most physical education programs, it is holiday time and you're sure to see the sport on many television channels. And it definitely is a physical activity. So, I thought I'd highlight a figure skater with a sense of humour. It's amazing what you can do with a few props.

By the way, it's a little racy (although not profane), so don't watch if you think you might be offended by a figure-skating bodybuilder in a thong. The skating is good though!! The video is 3:48.

Here's the link to Evgeni Plushenko's bodybuilder-on-skates program.
