Good Website explaining various weight exercises.

Check this link out!
http://www.getfit.com.au/html/excercises/

It has nice diagrams for each exercise. We can all get some ideas from here for toning. No weights at home? How about cans of soup? Those are weights!

I use this website to find the name of the exercises I performed. I'll start visiting to get ideas about exercises I can do too.
