Hello potential critics. I have a question that you could perhaps help me with.
I've been lifting seriously for close to a full year now. I'm 20 years old and am genetically pre-disposed to be skinny (ecto-morph essentially) Over the past year, i've seen mediocre results on all of my body parts i train intesnly. However, my shoulders are insanely small. I'm talking cartoonishly disproportionate to my arm. In fact, i think my upper arm is slightly larger than my delts when fully flexed. It's pretty disheartening.
My work out schedule lately has been:
Shoulder presses (db)
shoulder presses (machine)
delt raises front, side, and a focus on the rear as they dont get much work otherwise.
all of this once a week, with the regular 8-10 rep range until exhausted, about 4 sets a piece.
my diet isn't that bad as evidenced in my overall improvment. I suppose my quesitons are:
1) Is it possible that i've genetically maxed my delts out already as i've seen essentially 0% progress in the last few months despite no change in habits?
2) Is this a normal occurance in bodybuilders of my type? i know maybe one person with a smaller skeletal strucure than me.
3) Are there any exercises in particular that have helped you out in a slump? any that i should be doing that are particularly effective?
