I wake up in the morning at 6am and walk 2km (1.2 miles) to the gym and back five days a week. My workouts last 45 minutes and are aimed at sculpting, working on a body part per day (back, shoulders, chest, arms and legs). I weigh 100kg (220 pounds) and am 180cm (5.9 feet). I want to weigh 85kg (185 pounds). What and when should I eat to loose weight and gain maximum muscle mass? and how long should it take for me to loose this weight?
I work from home as a software developer and sit on my ass all day so I don't get any more exercise than that...

For every pound of weight that I can squat, I have X pounds of muscle. What is the value of X? [more inside]

I'm looking to shake up my workouts, shed the excess poundage, and get some more definition -- basically, I'm bored, not making much headway, and would like to get over the hump to better health/muscle shape. Since it's hard to tell the difference between the shills and the real online reviews, advice, etc., I need some Mefite first-hand experience with hydroxycut or similar supplements. [more inside]

I've read somewhere that a workout regime consisting of 13 compound lifts is really all you need. Does anyone know which 13 lifts they may be talking about ? or can point me to the article ? [more inside]

I watched "Pumping Iron" again a couple of months ago. I was surprised at how inspiring some the training scenes still were to watch.
(Yes, I'm aware it was a docu-drama, not a documentary.)
Any recommendations of other good dvds that might be a source of training inspiration? [more inside]

Strengthtrainingfilter: If I have a workout comprised of 6 exercises, 2 sets each, can I do all 6 exercises in a row twice, or do I have to do each one twice in a row? [more inside]

In On the Waterfront,
Edie's pop says to her, "See this arm? It's two inches longer'n the other one. That's years of workin' and sweatin', liftin' and swingin' a hook. And every time I heisted a box or a coffee bag I says to myself--this is for Edie, so she can be a teacher or somethin' decent." Can a lifetime of labor really do that to your arm?
