comment How to superset effectively?
How many times can you overhead press 10kg in a row? If it's more than 6 or 7 then 5x5 or low reps won't help, because the whole point of low reps is the corresponding challenging resistance.

comment How to superset effectively?
What is your goal? Strength, power, conditioning, mobility, endurance, don't care, maximum return on effort, minimum time spent working out...? Without a goal this is quite open-ended.

comment Why do bodybuilders take such a long recovery period?
@Grohlier Strung together with rest periods, sprints (or (bar/kettle/dumb)bell complexes) retain a significant anaerobic component, no?

comment To what extent is strength training about optimal breakdown of muscles
I have no idea which relationship you mean. Be clear. You keep dropping facts you think you know--overtraining is common in bodybuilding, inflammation is related to muscle breakdown--but no one has any clue how these relate to your question. At this point I'm starting to believe that you have no idea what your question is.

I dramatically edited the question in pursuit of Olav's actual question. Hopefully it's both answerable and close to what Olav wants to figure out.

I want to second the sentiment that getting used to failing on reps is a bad thing.

My understanding is that the Reg Park beginner routine is very close to what you're asking for. It is described in this answer.

comment Exercises for a programmer sitting by the PC all day
Personally I'd swap the bench for a pulling exercise like rows or pull-ups to counteract the Programmer Hunch, but getting into powerlifting is awesome any way you cut it.

comment What exercises would make up the minimum, complete, general fitness workout?
@masonk That's valid, but be aware that you're significantly stronger than me on several lifts. I'm certainly no expert either.
