There is a quick test to decide where to start!
Simply check your height vs. your waist measurement.
If your waist is equal to or less than 1/2 your height I would start with a (relatively) lower rep scheme and focus on getting my relative strength up.
If your waist is greater than 1/2 your height then I would focus on working with (relatively) higher rep schemes.
Of course, this is assuming you are healthy and already moving well.
Otherwise we may need to focus a bit on stability before moving into either rep scheme.
