Default Help. How should i progress in lifts?

I have been training in home gym for 4 mouths and i have made fine descent progress in lifts and muscle mass, since i had very limited equipment i decided to join the gym. Its only gym in my small town.


So my probelem is that the smallest plates in gym weight 5lbs so i have go 10lbs +in my lifts when i increase weight which is almost imposible for my upper body lifts when doing 3x3-5. What rep/set scheme should i use for my problem like 3x3-8 then when hit all sets with 8 up the weight, or when i hit 5 reps in 1 sets i add another and when i get to 6-7 sets i up weight? Pls any suggestion welcome.
