Try to do pull-ups with your legs still on the ground. For example under a table.

Back And biceps are the main muscles involved.  So if you have access to a gym; Bicep curls,  curl to shoulder press,  lat pull down.  Bent over rows will all help.  Do 5 sets of 5 to increase strength.  And keep trying.  Do assisted Pull ups where you are not pulling up your whole weight,  and try just hanging from the bar to increase grip strength.  Good luck!

Inverted rows, negative pull ups, assisted Pull ups- using resistance bands or a chair  what really helped me was losing extra weight an consistency keep at it

Everything Henry said, plus you can also hang on pull up rod for as much time as you can. It worked for me

I'm in the same boat, I workout most days n still can't quite manage a pull-up without any assistance on the pull-up machine, so iv started doing chin ups(assisted) as they are meant to be a great starting point to build upper body strength n a stepping stone to the almighty pull up!! Hopefully this might just work for us both. Fingers crossed n good luck check x
