1) Squats
2) Deadlifts
3) Power cleans

That's it. It takes me 30 minutes three days a week. If you do those lifts three days a week, you will be amazed at the full-body strength you will develop. Those exercises require almost all major muscle groups in the body in order to complete.
quoted for truth.

kettleball swings with as heavy a weight as you can manage has similar benefits as well.
