Hi Tommyboy. I think you're going to get a lot of value out of this kind of training. I can give my opinion on what kind of bag to get, but you'll definitely have to check with your healthcare provider in regards to why might be appropriate. We wouldn't want to aggravate your condition!

That being said, I wouldn't go much higher than 80lbs for a hanging bag for you (that would require a ceiling mount too). An 80lb bag, combined with good gloves, will give you a chance to hit and move as the bag sways.

Freestanding bags are very convenient and a bit easier on the hands and joints. They don't move around as much in terms of sway, so footwork requires a little more creativity to practice.

I hope this helps in your decision, and let me know if you have any follow up questions!
