A new routine to focus on arm growth
I want a routine that focuses on arm growth, especially bis. Obviously one would not pair bis with back, but it seems they only get sore when i either do this or do 12 sets instead of 6. Now soreness to me seems to be an indicator of growth (experience wise) so take that into consideration.
This is my current routine.
legs (sprinting) - dont flame, im cutting.
If you could list the exercises to do if there are any special ones i can do to focus on arm growth id appreciate it.

what yung wun said,plus arm's recover fast try working them out twice a week if you are focusing on them as a weak point, All body builders work on weak area's like that, untill they are satisfied then look for the next muscle that needs more work. I had a schedual where i worked my arms out twice a week and my chest and it worked out great.

Decoder, Arnold worked his bodyparts more than twice a week too. Can you explain this theory or exactly how you did it?
What was the routine SPLIT?
How many sets?

Yup arnold did, he worked his calf's, chest, arm's 3 times a week i believe, he could do this because of Muscle recover times. Example: Bi's and Tri's roughly take 24 hrs to recover, Chest 48 hours, calf's around 35 hours. Here is an advanced split, that i did for a month..
Monday: Chest 1 hour, Bi's and Tri's 1 hour
Tuesday: Legs (including calfs) 1hour
Wednesday: Back (upper and lower) 1hour
Thursday: Trap's 30, Shoulder's 45min's
Friday: Chest 1hour, Bi's and Tri's 1 hour
Note: ab's everyday , weekends off optional cardio on weekend.
200 grams of protien to support that work out.
Set wise i would do 4 sets, All most all drop sets, some supersets.
total sets is in the high 30's for each day with all excerises combined.

your doing the push pull routine, wich i think is an average work out.
Oh yah like wun said before too make sure your work out isnt written in stone, i show up to the gym knowing what im going to work out on but i dont decided what excersies untill the last minute.

Something that I tried last year and did wonders for my arms was a bia/tri superset day. First I did bias and tris on the same day. For every bia exercise do a tri exercise like a super set but with rest in between. It looks like this
bia 1 set/ tri 1 set
bia 1 set/ tri 1 set
bia 1 set/ tri 1 set
then repeat for next exercises
This was something very new for me and I noticed the difference quickly.

Well one thing you have to understand, when u're trying to cut its going to be hard to see any growth. I think your split definitely needs some refining, sprinting is not going to work out your legs like an actual leg workout(squats,ham curls,calf raises,etc), and by using such high intensity you are likely to burn more muscle then fat. I would definitely suggest u look over your split carefully and make sure you have a more solid plan for cutting.

Yeah well its been a while since ive trained and im expecting gains.
So i just wanna maximize my efforts, thats all.
If no gains, its cool - fat loss is my goal, but gains are definetely in the picture.
