    Are you asking if we train biceps and triceps on a different day? Like they are too demanding to train on the same day? Lol

    No.

    I do arms three days a week after a main bodypart rotation of chest, shoulders, back, legs, repeat.

    Everything rotates because I work out 5 days per week. For some reason doing arms on their own day once a week never worked for me, I have seen a night and day difference with the aforementioned.

    x2.

    I actually think my arms were weak and small because I gave them their own day once a week, that method never worked for me either.
    Now I train them in a similar way as this quoted post, but only twice a week, after chest/back one day and after shoulders the second day.
    What is important in my opinion is not separating biceps from triceps too. I train them after a major bodypart/bodyparts, but always do them together as supersets. As another poster pointed out, the pump is important for arms.

    Arm day alone never worked for me very well... A little bit more often is better. I did try arms after every bodypart a while, but i seems like chest plus arms, followed by back the next day, affected the back workout too much.
    my favorite spilt, which can easily have me training 14days in a row without breaks due to no overlapping is
    chest/tris ,back/bis, shoulders/tris,legs/bis....etc. Insert rest when needed...

    But splitting like above poster, chest/arms, shoulders, back/arms, legs could work .... Execept my shoulders cannot take a beating two days in a row very well... But a rest day after chest/arms, and back/arms might

    I can tell you that I have tried every different way of splitting up arms: tris after chest, tris after back, bis after chest, bis after back, bis and tris separate, but on the same day, and supersetting bis and tris. I gained an inch in one month by supersetting bis and tris (arms are one of my most stubborn parts) and I still make progress on my arms each month. I take a normal amount of rest between sets so that I can go as heavy as possible, and man does it work. When I say supersetting I don't do it in the traditional sense of rush back and forth between exercises. All that does is leave me winded

So I went back and good things happened
    LOL, arms grow from progressive tension overload, not a 'pump'

    Pumps are a sign of solid hydration and nutrition, obviously a key to growth. So yes they do grow from the pump=)

    I would say they're more of a sign that you are targeting a specific muscle more so than anything else, if you progressive overload the pumped muscle, along with proper nutrition, then yes it will grow :0

    I train bi's and tri's with medial delts. I superset overhead presses with a curl, upright rows with a tricep extension, and finish all 3 individually. This setup avoids training the triceps three times in one week, which is what you would be doing if you trained chest, medial delts and tris on different days.

    well i went back to having just an arms day a month ago and already have seen some increased size, definition and strength in my arms. I do not think it is necessary for everyone, but i do think it helps if you want to bring up your arms

    I wish i knew the answer. My arms suck ass and i have tried it all, all I can think of anyway.

    But, I train them together, becuase when my entire arms is pumped, it looks kinda big for about 45 minutes. Better than it never being big i guess. And i have my touch up days, if they are recovered.

    So frustrating.
