Default changing workout routine

Hello ,

i have been training bodybuilding for about six months now

when i began i was only able to carry 44 lbs for military press and in four months i was able to train with 77 lbs but the next two months the progress stopped and i'm stuck with this weight.
i heard that it's essential to change the workout routine , but is it enough to change number of reps and sets and alter workouts?
and will i see results soon after i change it ?

What is your current routine and current maxes?
Other stressors?

Also, we use full names here so if you would provide me with your last name so I can change your username.

my shoulder routine is:-
military press 3*15 , i can barely lift 88 lbs once
DB military press 3*12
lateral raise 3*8
front raise 3*12

Diet :- pre workout i have lunch 2 hours before
During exercise i drink water + any kind of fruit juice
i always take 2 eggs - 400 gm of yogurt and 2 bananas post workout
and a big meal an hour after
supplements are not available in my area , i like keeping on natural, non-processed stuff anyway

i sleep 7 hours daily ...i'm an ectomorph by the way and i have an afternoon nap (about 30 min minimum , 1:30 hours max)

i can't give my full name because it's not pronounced the same in english , in English it's more like a girl's name
so, i gave a shortcut as a respect to forum rules

What are your pulling numbers like? AKA how many strict pullups do you have.
What about the rest of your routine? Do you squat, deadlift, or do any of the olympic lifting variations?

Kareem, you need to give your goals if you want helpful advice. Put your goals into a short, clear post and people will be able to respond in much more helpful ways.

My goal is more strength , better body shape
But the problem is about my shoulders and biceps , they slowly or no more progress neither in shape or weight

i don't pull-up cos i train at home and yes i began to do deadlifts and squats each time i workout

when you continuously keep doing same workout than at some point your body muscles get used to workout thats why you are not getting improvement.. i suggest you to change your whole workout routine
