If I want to build up my biceps, should I work them every day?

You should not train your biceps every day. Your body actually reaps the benefits
of strength training while it recovers. In other words, your workouts cause stress to the body but once it is allowed to rest your body will adapt and become stronger. If you never give your biceps enough time to rest and recover, eventually they will breakdown causing injury. Allow at least 48 hours rest between arm workouts.
