They had some with Pilates name on it, and they were like $25 (!), but there were some generic ones on the bottom shelf for $8... look around, they had different ones, same ball, different brand name and price

OK as the only person on the board who's been stupid enough to break a toe by having a 10K disc fall on it. Be careful using weights with bare feet. I train at home (for the most part as gyms annoy me), but I now use double bolt collars on DB's (just in case). Although I doubt converse style shoes wouldn't have help too much, although I might not have got the slight nerve damage-restricted ROM - of the toe I now suffer?
But generally, if you're careful no shoes make no difference. I know Pat Reeves (British Powerlifting champ) doesn't train or compete in shoes (she wear someting like slipper socks in contest).

I would do the Shoe thing - ya never know. As for the weights and not getting stronger - As your amount of weight is limited it will become harder and harder to attain hypertrophy for mass (LRH). However you can use pre exhaust. This is a system where you isolate muscles before doing group. So hit your quads before lunges, like a super set…that if you have a bench with a quad arm.

Again on the nutrition, make sure you are getting the right fuels, soy include has high levels of glutamine (10.5g/100g soy protein) and Aktin & Myosin are made of 90% glutamine - these are the main 2 proteins in muscle. Also I have a handfull of Cashew nuts 20 mins before - Selinium (cos you will sweat out minerals) carbs and protein
100% Natural - 100% meat free muscle!!
