what is the better increase?: weights

I've been doing arm weights at home and I'm looking to increase my levels. What is the best way to do this? Add weight? Add reps at my standard weight? Add sets at my standard weight? Currently I'm doing 3 sets, 12 reps, 5lbs. I do four different lifts.

How easy is it for you to do those lifts with the 5 lb. weights? You can work on toning, by upping your reps, but I've also lost weight and gained muscle by increasing the weight of the dumbells I'm using.

up the weights. Or, start doing varied forms of push ups or other body weight exercises- cheaper, and better as they work more muscles within a single move.

I'd increase the weight and drop back to 8 reps if necessary. Even 5 will work. If you can't do sets of 5, it's too much weight.
It can be a problem moving up in weight in these lighter weights because a 5 pound increase is a lot, as a percentage. There are add-on magnetic weights (Plate Mates is a brand of them) that will work with metal weights, but not plastic covered ones. And you can usually find plastic covered dumbbells in 1 lb spacings with some looking. 8 and 12 pound metal ones exist to fill in the gaps between 5, 10 and 15. You can probably buy several pairs of small dumbbells for the cost of the Plate Mates. At least you have options!
And pushups are good too, as someone else suggested.

up the weights

to 8-12 reps max. Upping the reps is only good for endurance. Increase muscle mass with higher weights. More muscle = faster metabolism = lose weight!

If you would like to have good shape and cuts to your arm you better use 10lbs weight and try to do more sets. As articles from reviews blogs says Adding don`t really gives you nice toned arm for you. Less weight and increase in reps and sets will help you a lot to have nice arm with good biceps and triceps also. As a trainer I suggest this only to my students.
