    I notice when I work out certain parts of my body that I sweat a lot when I work out my legs and back.

    But when I work out my arms around the biceps and triceps, there is no sweat.

    I wonder if I am working out my arms wrong. What can I do to feel the difference like I actually worked them the hell out.

    My goal is to get bigger and muscular. Tired of being around 150. My ideal weight is to be 180-200lbs.

    Any help and tips would be appreciated.

    Bigger muscle groups take more energy to train, increasing core temps and triggering sweat. I wouldn't take this as a signal that you're not training properly, though there are always things you can improve upon if you're not getting the results you want. This just isn't something I would focus on.

    A quick glance at your profile suggests that too much of your activity involves endurance sports. Cut out that stuff if your goal is to put on weight.

    The bigger the muscle group is, the more energy you're using, the more you'll sweat. Nothing makes me sweat more than back day.

    What's your arm workout like? A quick fix is to do either 21s at the end, or some burn sets.

    I workout three times a week around 2 hours each day. One day is legs and back, the second day is triceps and biceps, and the other day is shoulders and chest. I should probably start mixing it up a little too than just do the same routine.

    Try doing just one body part a day for six weeks and see how that goes.

    Or try this pairing:
    Day One - back and biceps
    Day Two - chest and triceps
    Day Three - legs and shoulders
