Here's an interesting article about the most fundamental exercises. There are LOTS of well-respected trainers on that list. Very interesting responses. I'm a big fan of Dan John and Eric Cressey on that list.

I would say if there were 5-6 exercises you could do with just bodyweight and maybe a lighter dumbbell or medicine ball:

Bodyweight squats / lunges - knee hinge exercise
Good mornings/single leg deadlifts - hip hinge exercise
Wall pushes/table pushups/pushups - upper body push/plank
Body rows/pullups - upper body pull
Medicine ball chop/lift - core anti-rotation
Carry something heavy for a while - grip, strength, endurance
