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

it'll work provided you have the diet to back it up

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.
