    This is my standard 2 week alternating.

    1st week
    3x6 1x25 Shoulder Press @ 60* Inc.
    3x6 1x25 Shoulder Press @ 90* upright (behind the head)
    3x6 1x25 Upright Rows
    3x6 1x25 Standing Delt Raises
    3x6 1x25 Bent Over Delt Raises (or reverse P-Deck)

    2nd Week
    3x12 Cable Delt Raises
    4x12 Arnold Press
    4x12 Shoulder Press (behind the head)
    4x12 Upright Rows
    4x12 Reverse P-Deck Or Cables

    I'm not quite seeing the results I'd like, anyone got any suggestions?

    3x6 1x25 doesn't make any sense
    delt raise = lateral raise?
    in general, it's just bad

    All I'm going to say is your shoulders don't need many of those exercises. One pressing movement, and a lateral movement would be fine. You don't need a dedicated shoulder day anyway, makes no sense for a natural trainee. To add to that, you need to stick with the same movements every week until you plateau and then change them and the order.

    Your "incline shoulder press" is actually incline chest press so drop that from your shoulder day.

    How strict is your form on all of these movements? That can make a big difference in what muscles you are actually working.
