6-8 reps works the best for my biceps and 8-12 reps for my triceps.

like was said - everyone is different. My arms respond better to higher reps with a really good squeeze. In saying that i do some heavy too on arm day

Any ways. I have been making progress with something like this.
I start off lighter do a set to 15. Go a little heavier rep to 12, and so on to about 6 or 7. After I lighten the load and do a last set for 10-12

I do antagonistic super-sets when I train arms.
I do a set of ten with biceps, then rest 30 seconds and do a set of ten with triceps, and repeat for three sets before taking a three minute break.
A typical workout would go like this, AFTER doing all my compounds...
Dips- 10 reps; 30 seconds / Chinups- 10 reps; 30 seconds - repeat 3 times
Skull crushers- 8 reps; 45 seconds / Barbell Curls- 8 reps; 45 seconds - repeat twice
Close grip bench press- 12 reps; one minute / 21s; finish.

Ive never really been able to build my bis for a while i just didnt train them directly since for baseball i dont need big bis and they got some size just from doing back days but ended up lacking a lot behind tris but ive been doing just high reps super sets 21's to kill them and ive seen a good change. My freind whose a football player does 6-8 reps when i workout with him hes huge too so id have to say that range works well.

today i felt a huuuge arm pump when i did bi's, i would curl it, then go down extremely slow and focus on form.
