Late to the game, but a quick thought re: whether you should keep lifting with heavier weights -
If you look to popular programs such as stronglifts, it's usually recommended that you try to accomplish your intended sets with your chosen weight about three times before you drop it, and then drop it down ~10% if you still can't make your reps. For example, when you're trying to lift 50 kg, if for three sessions you can't hit your intended reps, drop it to 45 kg. When you're trying for 50 kg, though, don't drop to 45 within your sets. Push out as many as you can with 50 kg.
In general, though, I agree with the earlier sentiments about probably only bumping up 2.5 kg rather than 5.0 kg with accessory moves like bicep curls. Adding 5 kg to a squat isn't going to feel like nearly as much of a jump as adding 5 kg to a bicep curl. If you've got the option and feel like you've plateaued (and assuming you're curling a barbell and not dumbbells), baby plating is always a good idea.

thank you BnB
yeah i guess i will try with adding only 2.5 per arm instead of 5, it would help me to execute reps better and without pain :P
