I only increased my training max by 5lbs per cycle as I did not want to stall out too quickly on the program. I think this was probably a mistake.
There are so many possible variables, but out of what you posted... I think the 50-60% range wouldn't do much to push strength and 5lb jumps may have been too little as well.

If you are deadlifting and squatting to parallel or deeper, your hams should need minimal direct attention (unless you have clearly identified them as a weakness). Just remember, you can only max so many goals at once.

Sounds like the hammy groundwork and squat frequency you laid down should serve you well for a heavier program.

You should be set up for better progress in this round !
