Pretty much any decent program will yield results, provided that you’re training hard and consistently, and that your nutrition and recovery are somewhat in place.
I wouldn’t worry about “is this working?” until I had put in at least a couple of months. Most people don’t understand just how slow of a process this can be.
I partially blame poor marketing and advertising for all the supplements pushed out. I have read so many times about take x,y,z and gain 40 pounds of muscle in three months. No one can gain thirty pounds of pure muscle alone, in that short of time frame. Physiologically speaking that is impossible.
Realistic goal setting and education on how the body works, as well as adaptability to training stimulus, and growth potential sans steriods is really important. At OP, give it a year to see some really significant changes. Even over that and you can look into a lifetime of improvement.
