Is my workout routine good?

I wanna start lifting weights again so I designed my own workout routine. It's basically the popular StrongLifts 5x5 program, except I'll do 5 (or more) sets of 8-15 reps instead of 5 sets of 5 reps per exercise. My overall goal is to get bigger. Do you guys think my workout plan along with a high calorie diet would be effective at gaining muscle mass? I also plan to do martial arts twice a week on rest days.

Workout A:

- Bench Press

- Squat

- Barbell Rows

Workout B:

- Squat

- Deadlift

- Overhead Press

Week 1:

Mon: Workout A

Tues: Rest

Wed: Workout B

Thurs: Rest

Fri: Workout A

Sat: Rest

Sun: Rest

Week 2:

Mon: Workout B

Tues: Rest

Wed: Workout A

Thurs: Rest

Fri: Workout B

Sat: Rest

Sun: Rest


5ft7, 132lb/60kg - My goal is to get bigger, so I guess gain 10-20lb.

    Do the 5x5 as laid out. Also add pushups and chinups at the end of your workouts.
