I'm working on the samething...there are many methods.. a good routine to help up tht rep count... 4 sets to failure with weight (weather using a weighted vest or belt u can add plates to or even a backpack) last set take the weight off and go to failure again... then do 3 sets no added weight using negative reps try lowering yourself for 6 count and thn explode back up all 3 sets to failure ... thn 2 sets regular reps to failure.... buying a resistance band is a good investment after completing those sets it should be impossible for you to complete one rep by adding a resistance band it decreases ur bodyweight (u probably knw tht) and can add 1 more set to failure...keep the rest between sets to a minimum and train as intense as u can... try ths routine every other day..oneĀ  week on and using ur regular RoutineĀ  the next week thn repeat ths routine again... try it and see what happens

I hate pull ups. My father tells me in hi school he did 1 handed pull ups! Also 1 handed FINGER TIP push ups!

Reps are not more important than results....

If you not doing 10 sets of 10, CORRECT FORM, no weight needed...

For a time tht is true but your body only provides a certain amount of resistance ... unless ur gaining massive amounts of weight (and it would be bodyfat because ur not gonna put slabs of muscle on using bodyweight exercises) ur gonna hit a plateau... yes correct form is important not just in pullups but every exercise... yes time under tension works and sloppy form isnt gonna get results weight or no weight ... but if form is good and u can bust out 10 reps and you want to go to twenty reps adding weight is a great...

Im not saying dont add weight, im just saying thats not always the safe and first answer to everything....

Point taken...if your new to pullups or physical training at all...learning correct form is essential... physiologically speaking...you can't keep doing the samething an exspect to keep getting results... I sure wouldn't recommend someone new to bodybuilding to put 200lbs on the bar and go for it... 1) chances are he want be able to lift it 2) he could get hurt.... but eventully he will have to add weight and their are hundreds of training principles out there to utilize .... keeping it intense and training hardcore =results.... but form first and always train wisely and safely we agree on...
