"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I say give it a try. I actually did that for some time after reading about an old time bodybuilder who had great biceps who did the same. He said that by training his biceps first it motivated him for the rest of his workout. I used it for psychological reasons but would not hesitate to do what you are doing.
You already know it may lower your performance in some lifts, I'm sure.

It is best to work the largest muscles first when you have the most energy. For examples squats are the best exercise to start with because the quads are the biggest muscle group. The reason to train from largest to smallest is due to the indirect effect. The larger the muscle is that you are training the more effects it has on the the other muscles of the body.

Again squats involve the biggest muscle group so it has the most positive effect on all muscle groups. I would recommend that you take a look at this website http://arthurjonesexercise.com/...Bulletin1/4.PDF

Just seems if i do the routine like ive been doing for about 6 months...
largest muscle to the smallest, by the time i get to my arm workout i cant do hardly nothing, but if i go in there and workout and do arms first i can do 10x the rep and the load...

my biceps and triceps are usually the last thing in my routine but im goin to try the arm thing first for a few workouts and see if i like the results..

Do arms first, with maybe some pre-fatigue supersets. I think you'll like the results!

I'm the same. My arms are fast to fatigue and working them at the end is meaningless. Half the reps only (depending on the actual routine). My traps on the other hand which are slow to fatigue may even gain some reps on the end of workout when pre-fatigued. For Pecs(mixed) it doesn't matter much where I have them.
