Simplicity is often mistaken for a lack of excitement or intensity, especially in the fitness industry.
Proof; type “fitness” in the Instagram/Facebook search and scroll down. There are some pretty complex and complicated movements being displayed, most of which the average person would probably get injured while attempting.
Personally, I like the foundation of high quality simple movements. They ensure that the different muscles and connective tissues(bones, tendons and ligaments) are well adapted. When introducing the compound movements, it is done so with the confidence in all the structures due to the rigorous process of simple but effective training.
You are welcome to start your journey wherever you please. Just remember, the repair work probably takes twice as long as having done it simply the first time.
