Well what are your goals? Flyes don't really relate to fighting or functional strength at all. But you should do dips instead

Strengthening any muscle for MMA will help. However, biceps are pretty freaking worthless. There is a lot of other muscle groups that are more important to train. If you goal is to look great at the beach awesome. If its to train for strength for MMA, then other exercises would be more appropriate. Some things that come to mind are squats, dead lifts, snatches, cleans, and military press. I know not a lot of your workout is posted yet and I apologies if the above are in your routine later on.

To answer a question, Im lookin for fighting strength, I plan on going into the ameatur level within a year-18 months or so( must be a blue belt in bjj to fight outta my dojo and im a yellow right now) I'm also saying as a reminder that I'm comming off a 5 week back injury so Im going light for the first couple weeks. Any suggestions, remarks, or critisizm is welcomed. Thankx:thumb02: guys

Oh also I know I'm not getting enough cardio so starting next week I'm intergrating running stairs, jumping rope, and car pushing

If you're looking for strength you should ditch your Bodybuilding workout and do this basic 5x5 program. It's GREAT for developing functional strength that transitions into MMA very nicely. Here's a link to the program:
Eclipse Gym :: View topic - Bill Starr 5x5 Primer - How to create your own 5x5 program

The basic gist of the 5x5:
THE BILL STARR 5x5

Monday (Perform them in this order)

1) Bench Press

2) Squats

Wednesday (Perform them in this order)
