    Выходн́ые.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    am i wrong when i'm saying that vykhodnoy is the opposite of a working day, not necessarily the end of the week?
    hence, how would you say "i'm working on week-ends"?
    and can you say "vtornik i sreda u menia vykhodnye"?

    No, it's not wrong.

    Я работаю по выходным. (if it's usually) / Я работаю на выходных. / На выходных я работаю. / В выходные я работаю.

    No, you are actually quite right.
    hence, how would you say "i'm working on week-ends"?
    'Я работаю в выходные' or 'Я работаю по субботам/воскресеньям'
    and can you say "vtornik i sreda u menia vykhodnye"?
    You bet
