I've been lifting for about a month and I am really just looking to get stronger. Is this routine good? Or should I keep with the WBB#1?

No, it's not good; you're not doing any pullups or rows.

Where would I fit pullups? And rows? Do you mean barbell rows like this? http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/BackGeneral/BBBentOverRow.html

If I do BB curls twice a month im lucky, twice a week is too often. Their like 5% of your major muscle groups, their training focus and frequency shouldn't be much higher.
