I've potty trained 3 boys, all around age three. Lots of talking about it. How happy you'll be if he starts wearing big boy pants, instead of baby diapers. Acting really grossed out by his poopy diaper, and how he should do it in the toilet. I also put restrictions on them. They can't use markers like the big boys until he wears big boy pants, stuff like that. M&M's work too, like the sticker system. I agree with akayday, too. When he goes, make a HUGE deal about it. Oh, also, before you put him in the bath at night, try to have him go. He's already naked, so its easier. Just remember... I've never known a 5 year old who still wears diapers. When he's ready, he's ready.
