comment Should I train all muscles or concentrate on some muscles in each session?
Since you are starting out, research strength training programs and see if you like their strength training philosophy. Programs will take the guess-work out of your routine and let you focus on seeing results. I recommend these: NROL and Maximum Strength by Eric Cressey which offer pictures for proper form and nutritional info.

comment Push-up Variations
@Samuel Andrew - there are in fact variations you can do, see my answer. The triceps and biceps are antagonistic pairs which means when one contracts, the other relaxes and vice versa. So working out one, does work out the other although the "work" may be perceived as minimal.

Oh yeah, my calluses are where the fat pinches on the top of the palms like you mentioned it pinches on you.

comment Painful grip on deadlift and lat pulldown
They probably have calluses. I have some calluses that still haven't gone away completely and I use gloves 99% of the time. I know guys that workout with their wedding rings without gloves and wonder how the ring doesn't bug them. Also if it's truly "extreme weight", they are probably not lifting for high reps.

comment How many calories are burned while doing interval running?
I'd just eat healthy and not worry about the calories. Weigh yourself each week and see what you get - tweak as you see fit. If you are an emotional eater, avoid any foods that might trigger you to over indulge. I know a guy is incredibly fit now and he refuses to eat pizza ever b/c it's what got him obese (not fat, but truly obese). Keep logging those miles!
