    depends. the truth is everyone will tell you something different. honestly, i did this with great success. however.... if you train your chest with DB's and try training your triceps the next day, you're in for a world of hurt (at least if you keep the DB's close to your body). the real factor here is : are they sore after a chest workout or the next day before your arm workout? if yes, then its bad to train them. if not, go ahead and rip them apart.

    Yes. Your triceps will be significantly weaker because they will have been taxed the night before. The same applies to back and biceps.

    weak point arms.... the classic problem. the solution is simple (relatively). do 3-4 sets of 8-10 reps each of the following supersets:
    close grip bench
    weighted chin ups (underhand grip)
    weighted dips
    barbell curls
