I know I'm a bit out of the mainstream here sometimes, but my own advice would be simply to do whatever you find mentally easiest to sustain, first. Starting an exercise program and keeping it up is HARD -- I have tried and failed at it more times than most here have tried and failed at dieting, and you need to be as easy on yourself as possible in order to keep it going.
Absolutely anything you could do is beneficial in one way or another, but it's the simple habit of exercising that is what is needed in the long term. Once that habit is established, then I think is the time to worry about doing it "right".
