Default Woefully weak squat! Serious help needed!

I am interested in getting into powerlifting. I need to increase my squat significantly as to not completely embarrass myself! I started Wendler's 5/3/1 with a tested max of 310. After 8 cycles I hit a max of 325 (probably could have tested at 335). Not a true 1RM test, but still pretty sad for 8 months work.

I used the BBB template so my accessory work was some form of squat for 5 sets of 8-10 at 50-60%. Also tried to work on my weak hams with RDL's for 3 sets of 5-8. 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.

Anyway, I'm not sure 531 is the program to get me to where I need to go. I feel like I probably need more volume at higher weight. My training experience is still what I would consider newby, so I have no business trying to create my own program. Any help from the huge pool of experienced powerlifters here on this form would be greatly appreciated!

Feel free to post advice in this thread or PM me if you can help! Thank you
