My 2c here: Current recommendation by the AMA is 30 minutes of elevated heart rate per day. When asked what form of elevated heart rate is preferred the response is “whatever you’ll do”.
So running is great, so is biking, so is going into the yard and swinging around on little trees and doing somersaults. Long as you elevate that heart rate, you’re doing your body a service. Is 3 hours per day better than 30 minutes, maybe, but if the advice was 3 hours a day it’d put a great many people off it all together.
I personally play volleyball once a week, softball twice a week and bike to the nearby park to read on some other days. I probably don’t hit quite 30 minutes every day but I I exceed it on sports and bike days. Thankfully in the winter I’m at my happiest and fill my yard with snowmen. (My snowman game is better than yours, fight me) I got off track here.
My point is the best science right now is a pretty low bar == what is currently recommended, so try and meet it, method matters little.
Edit: Downside, today was softball day and I got a nice gnarly (maybe) sprained ankle trying to simultaneously duck a throw I couldn’t see and run the bases, so if whatever you’ll do has a risk of injury, be careful, there’s definitely some appeal to something a bit safer. Now I’m off my feet for a little while. (I’m gonna do the “manly” (stupid) thing and not see anyone about my ankle that’s quite visibly swollen.)
