I know you want to make up your own routine. When I was just beginning, I wanted to do the same thing. It's half the fun, isn't it? I'm sure you sit around and write up routines in class when you're not interested in what the teacher is talking about. You probably let your mind wander to issues of "minimal overlap" when you should be paying attention to something more useful.

This is a HUGE mistake. If you do this, you'll end up actually following routines that you make up yourself, which is a massive waste of time. Just do something that somebody much smarter and more experienced than all of us has put together, like the Starting Strength program. Change it slightly only if absolutely necessary ("I wanted to do more bicepTs" doesn't qualify). This will save you months, perhaps years of wasting your time.

Overhead press 3x5
Chin up's alternated with Pullups 3xfailure
or Barbell Rows 3x5

Good. This would fall under the "change it slightly only if absolutely necessary" heading.

How heavy do they go? Can you challenge yourself with them? Only having access to DB's doesn't mean you aren't allowed to do a useful program.

I started out using dumbbells too. Just prepare to use the barbell in the future, if you want to continue recieving gains and keep workouts from getting boring.
