Neat thread. I started out with a modified Westside template with an additional delt day while I was "into" powerlifting. Went into it being able to only squat and bench 95lbs for reps and made some good strides but with little understanding of the method and having 0 clue about diet I only went so far.
I increased the volume of the workouts and decreased all my weights so that I could hit all exercises with strict form and things exploded from there. Squat took a while to go up, so I unknowingly adapted the protocol from Doggcrapp and bought that up to an ok number.
Unfortunately my delts have been stalling for at least half a year (doing 85lb DB presses for 10-12, now can only hit 6; and my lateral raises are literally catching up to seated presses), which I do think is due to overexertion of the front delts, so I'm looking to switch up my routine completely and have my eyes on DC training.
