The simplest I can think of is push, pull and legs. Well, legs isn't a movement pattern, but you get the idea ...
"Train movements, not muscles" is the popular catch phrase.
Dan John's 5 Basic Human Movements
Push - vertical & horizontal

Pull - vertical & horizontal

Squat - no more need be said

Hinge - deadlifts, cleans, snatches, kettlebell everything

Loaded carry - Farmer's Walks, Waiter's Walks, backpacks, sandbags, etc...
I think loaded carry has the greatest training benefit of all.
