Default Question about Westside for skinny b's

Well im definitely a skinny b...
I'm 5'9 or 5'10 and weigh like 125 or 130
I've been working out off and on but for the past month or a little more i've been really dedicated to working out (except a week I took off because I had the flu) and i plan to stay dedicated

My question is.. does what I'm doing actually work?
I'm concerned a tad more about mass than strength

What I'm doing can be seen below

Can anybody recommend anything better?

Thanks for the help

Well my diet is pretty good I think

I have a protein shake before my work out
I have muscle milk after
then I have breakfast
a pb&j before lunch
lunch
tuna crackers and milk before dinner
then dinner
and sometimes but not usually i have muscle milk again before I go to sleep

After how many weeks should I switch my routine up?

It's really more complicated than you need. you could use it as a template but streamline it more to a simple linear progressve system.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

What exactly do you mean by that?

I've moderated it a little already
On Max Effort I do wide grip pull ups instead of horizontal rows
I added in a bicep exercise to do on Max Effort day
I also added in wrist curls because my forearms are really small and weak

^^^ i think eric meant that you can do a more suitable upper-lower which is less complicated.

for example,

Lower 1:
Squats 5x5
RDLs 3x6-10
Pull throughs 3x10-12
Abs

Upper 1:
Bench Press 5x5
Barbell Rows 5x5
Dumbbell Bench Press 3x8-12
Dumbbell Rows 3x8-12

Lower 2:
Deadlifts 3x3
Squats 2x10
Glute Ham Raises 3-4x6-10
Ab Work

Upper 2:
Military Press 5x5
Pull-ups 5x failure
Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press 2x10-12
Lat Pull Downs superset with Bent Arm Pullovers 2x10-12

or something along these lines.....basically something that allows you to progress gradually and steadily.
