    How heavy are your dumbbells? Do you have a bar on which you can do pullups? Is there an option to use a barbell with the bench?

    With just a bench and DBs you can do quite a few excercises, but for many of them you will outgrow the dumbbells you have now pretty quickly (I'm assuming your DBs aren't terribly heavy).

    With the equipment you have no you can do bench press, flys, skull crushers, tricep dips, seated extensions, shoulder press, lateral raises, shrugs, one arm DB rows, curls, squats, deadlifts, lunges, dumbbell cleans, clean & presses, bent over rows... but you're severely limited by the weights you can use.

    Please don't worry about "getting huge". Train as hard as you can. Don't hold back because you're afraid of getting too muscular. To avoid gaining weight too quickly just watch the calories. But I don't think you will have a problem with that.

    I hear lots of people who have just started working out say that they are afraid of getting too big, as if they are gonna look like Arnold after a few weeks in the gym.

    Yep.

    Getting "huge" is definitely an intentional effort and does not happen by accident. You won't turn into a monster unless you deliberately try, and for an extended and dedicated amount of time.
