"Typically the worlds best athletes are minimalists when it comes to their training. They work hard and fast with few exercises. They master the fundamentals and work with them for years. This is the secret that no one wants to hear."

- Greg Glassman

"Pure Power" is a website dedicated to basic strength training. They employ a no frills high intensity low volume regimen built around a minimal number of exercises. They aren't trying to forge athletes so there is no conditioning component, but the site is worth lookin over.
