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.
I don't like training that way to be honest. You are forcing a certain progression instead of letting it come to you.

I prefer novices and intermediates do a lot of AMAP sets, only to the point where their form stays good - and progressing when they can based on current set performance.

My squat went from Bar to 365 for a triple in 18 months when I was 18. I let progression naturally do it's work instead of limiting it.
