do i continue with 3 sets and 5 reps for along time or can I up the reps or sets, or will this lead to over training? just wondering because I have been 5 reps and 3 sets because I didn't read it right so i just corrected myself the other day,
You can change the reps and sets if you like. In fact, if you're training for a sport, it's probably best to use a rep range that uses the same metabolic pathways as your sport.

Agree with above. Don't mess with it. Add weight, not sets or reps.

Twirl said it all. Also, you might read the book Starting Strength - tons of good info in it.
