Advice for old guy

I'm putting a heavybag in my garage this winter and looking at getting back to some fitness and training with it. Haven't boxed since I was 16-17, and am now 36. I got away from it due to a few serious neck and head injuries, but have missed it ever since. I want the cardio and strength benefit from it. What is your best advice for someone who hasn't "been at it" in a long time? 70lb vs. 100lb? Bag gloves vs. actual boxing gloves? Sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere, as I'm new at this forum.
