there are two ways to gain muscle the most obvious is power lifting. Heavy weights for 7-10 reps each set. then there is conditioning which is the opposite. light weight and many reps. but for both eventualy you need to increase weight to gain mass.

5 lbs? yeah just keep doing them throughout the day... for like 10-12 hours a day, and you should see some serious results.

okay no seriously though, get in the gym and find a good workout book to guide you. go every day. do ALL the muscle groups, not just biceps or even arms. eat like you havent eaten in weeks... I mean stuff your face all the time with high protein food and get plenty of sleep. then you'll see real results. its all or nothing. no point in half assin it, you'll just get dissapointed.

yeah and if you're looking for size do as much weight as you can for 6-10 reps on most of the exercises, 5 sets. I doubt that 5lbs is challenging. you're probably doing 100 reps per set, or at least I hope to god you are.

Don't do curls only. Also do raises, butterflys, punches, etc.

lol okay good. get that book though, its the best reference I've ever seen for finding exercises to target specific muscles. theres also some good material out there with advice on eating and meal plans.

i eat pretty good. like i said im just trying to get in shape for baseball workouts. i dont wanna go back and be out of shape. my coach will bitch me out. i just wanna know some good worouts with two 5 lb. bar bells. plus i want mt arms to get bigger. i want the sleeves on my polos to be just at my arms width. to where if i flex it will stretch.

well you need at least some bigger weights for that. then do standing curls, concentration curls, pullups, kickbacks, tricep extensions, some dips, etc. like I said though, you wont see huge results if you dont get serious about it.
