    Can someone please lead to a comprehensive list of compound exercises. I've looked and I could'nt find. I read about a guy Robert dos Remedios who uses this as his base for strength but nowhere in the article states what exercises and how do I do them. Five Strength-Training Principles - Men's Health

    It tells me what exercises but doesnt show how to do them, any help?

    In the FAQ, look for 5x5...then do some searches on youtube for videos for squats, deadlifts, Over head press, Power Cleans.

    Any type of movement that involves many muscles being used at once, think Squats, Bench Press, Power Cleans, Deadlift, Military Press, Chin ups.

    Your examples are great, but your explanation is not quite right. Compound exercises involve movement in more than one joint, not muscle.

    For example: gripper closes.
