Classic Compound: The Deadlift
“…it’s very hard to imagine a more useful application of strength than picking heavy shit up off the ground.”-Mark Rippetoe

While primarily working the legs and back, the deadlift is another great compound exercise that activates muscle groups all over the body and a staple of building all round strength alongside the squat.
