comment Pull weights while running
I think I'd find weights in sand awkward because of non-uniform resistance (sometimes the weights will dig in, sometimes they'll skip across the surface, etc.). But other than that, I can't think of anything negative.

comment How do I know if I'm training too hard?
@Hituptony True, you don't have to snack constantly, and I didn't say it was necessary. There is such a thing as trading fat for muscle. It happens when on a recomposition plan (see this answer). You say it yourself when you say "lean mass gaining and fat loss"... lulz

Soreness is not a good measure for recovery. It is possible for a person to still make progress and lift safely through full range of motion while experiencing DOMS. DOMS is not a signal of over training.

@ChrisKempen Re: suggestions, I can't tell for sure, but three meals + one snack seems on the low side of things. Eat more, or snack more constantly. Monitor body fat% so you don't get too worried when you don't see your weight going down (you might be trading fat for muscle). Tiredness is definitely a side effect of training (whether you call it harsh training or not is a matter of opinion). I wouldn't treat tiredness on its own as a signal of overtraining, though. Overtraining usually shows up with multiple symptoms (insomnia, irritability, poor workout performance, etc.).

If you think your essay is an important part of a good answer, you should repeat it here, rather than simply linking to it.

@Peter I agree with Baarn. If the information on your website is part of the correct answer, you should repeat it here, rather than require a click through to your website.

comment Which collection of specific exercises can be used to completely substitute Deadlift?
I think your edit would be better as a self-answer. You can even accept it if it was what made things better for you.

comment To what extent is strength/fitness genetically passed on?
This is a biology question, not a fitness question. I don't see how an answer to this question will inform your fitness activities.

comment Different approaches of increasing weight in exercises
@Josh That's probably right. Not optimal for either, but you'll see some progress on both for a while.

comment Different approaches of increasing weight in exercises
@Josh When you ask "is this actually a bad thing"? It's kind of hard to answer. Bad compared to what? Compared to inactivity, it's awesome. I don't think it's unhealthy to work out.

comment Recently started a bulking phase, why is my stomach always upset?
@JordanCarroll I believe the effects of lactose are cumulative effect... your body might not be able to produce lactase fast enough to keep up with the lactose. I'm not saying this is definitely your issue, since we can't diagnose you here, but it's something that you should rule out. (If lactose is the problem, replacing whey protein with milk wouldn't solve your problem.. you'd be getting just as much lactose.)

Have you considered digestive issues related to the high amount of whey protein you're consuming? It would explain why it feels worse when sitting down than when you're up and moving around.
