When lifting to increase strength, you typically want to go with high weight and lower number of reps. If you can do more than 7 or 8 reps easily, then add some weight. Always start with a warm-up set or two of lighter weights, but then go for heavy lifts. I like to finish with a lighter set to burn out as many reps as possible, but the majority of the workout is heavy. You'll also want a higher calorie, high protein diet. When I say high-calorie, I don't mean a bunch of junk food. I just mean you can't go starving yourself and expect to gain any size/strength.
