i would do a different program altogether instead of sticking with 5/3/1. you will get awesome noob gains regardless. i would choose a program that allows for easier linear progress, something like ironaddict's SPBR.
if you are dead-set on sticking with 5/3/1 you could bump up the weight more each time you calculate your maxes but i think there are better approaches at your level. try not to overthink and alter programs; they were written by their authors as they were for a reason. im sure you could get away with it, but i just think there are better things to do instead.
think of it this way: if you want to further increase your maxes each cycle, your purpose is to progress faster. if you want to progress faster, linear progression is where its at.

seriously, all aspects of my life have been suffering because of this damn game. not since diablo 2 happened in high school have i been so absorbed by something so much. i had been getting about 3-4 hours sleep each night due to skyrim and schoolwork until i finally crashed for 13 hours last night lol.
