Low reps or high?

When I took the Getting Started program, the instructor told me I was doing too many reps. He said to increse the weight and reduce the reps. Yesterday I needed a new record sheet, and the staff person that I asked looked over what I had been doing on my previous sheet and suggested I was doing too few reps. He said to increase my reps or lower my weights.
As an example, before the Getting Started program I was doing 30 reps, 3 times at 150 lbs on the Leg Press. The instructor suggested that I increase to 160 lbs, and lower my reps to 10 - 3 times.
Now the staff person the other day says increase to 15 reps, or lower to 150 - that I will bulk up if I continue doing it the way I have been.
