Weighted Push-ups - 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps
Barbell Deadlifts - 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps
Barbell Overhead Press - 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps

I honestly think that's newb level but if you are a newb, indeed that would be the right range. Advanced level power workouts look more like 18 sets of 3 reps. Maybe 12 sets of 1 rep if you're trying to go heavier. 3 sets of 3 reps is a bad 5 mins on a construction site, not a workout.

The specific details of a workout don't make much difference muscle gain. The most important thing is to find a routine that doesn't cause tendon inflammation, fraying and rupture.
