Personally, I think an increase of 5% in 6 weeks is too small but I guess you could get more than that, especially if you’re a beginner, by training that same exercise 3 times a week.

Honestly I think Practical Programming should be compulsory reading for all people who ever touch a set of weights

This russian program you pointed out is more for advanced people. Most programs out there are for advanced people. If you are not advanced you can make much faster progress with less complexity.
