If you hit a plateau just increase your weights, dont increase your reps and sets. Thats virtually the same thing. Even if you are trying to increase your endurance its true that more reps will do that, but you need to either change your workout or increase your weights. Muscles have an incredible memory so you wont be doing anything to them by doing the same thing over and over again.
