    should i target biceps first to make sure they are fresh? or should i do back first to make sure i can pull enough weight to get a good workout on my back?

    You should be doing your big compound pull (i.e. deadlift) first, and then the rest of your back work (wide grip pullups, upright row, etc..). At the end, if your arms still aren't tired, I usually do 3 sets of curls, but you should damn well be tired.

    Your arms will (likely) give out long before your back. Hit the back, then finish the arms off.

    I always do dl's on lower body days...feels like more of a lower body workout to me than it does an upper body.

    BACK then Bi's.

    The large musculature of the back is MUCH more important than your biceps. I personally do have a small bicep routine I do but focus more on heavy back and rowing movements.

    I also hate doing bi's.. with the proper back workout, you shouldn't need bicep isolation at all..

    Tri's on the other hand, I love. ;)
