    Struggle along with 5x1 negatives. Really push yourself. After a few weeks you'll be at 5x2, then 3, etc. Once you get to 5x5-6 then you'll be strong enough to attempt a real pull up. You'll probably get 1 or 3/4 but it'll be huge progress for you since your vertical pull strength is complete garbage

    Try resistance-band-assisted pullups, if you still can't do it then strengthen your back with inverted rows and barbell/dumbbell rows

    I did negative chins for months and all it did was make my form worse without me realizing.

      bad advice.
      Nothing trains pull ups but pull ups.
      And imo pull ups are the single best exercise for muscle building. they train your entire upper body. pull ups alone are sufficient to get you fit and strong

    I couldn't do 1 pullup a few months ago now I can do 7 with good form. You need to focus on inverted rows, grip strenght and abs exercises then work your way with bands, negatives or assisted pull ups

    Start with the lat pull-down machine fagott, watch your form and everything, go at it for 1-2 months steady progress and you will reach it

    Start by trying to hang on the bar, even if its for a second. Even if you can't do a negative, just: Hang, and release. Jump back up, hang, release. Do it 4x4x4.
    Then start negatives (4x4x4). Hang in there and go down slowly. Keep doing it until you get to 8x8x8. Rest at least one day before you retry, when you start doing pullups, your arms (because your lats are barely being activated) tend to be sore a lot.

      Am I supposed to wiggle like a worm when hanging on the bar? It kinda looks awkward tbh

        Very much so, most likely your gripping muscles of the forearm are just not used to the level of tension you're asking. Because you're not activating the back, the rest of the muscles are trying to help and you get all shaky. Eventually you'll get some doms in your core because he tried to help you stabilize while you wiggle.
        When i meant hanging, i meant hanging up there, with chin over the bar btw (not hanging down).
        If you want to start understanding a bit more how to activate your back, look into scapular pull ups. Its very short range and helpful for form but I always preach to start with hanging, then negatives because I see a ton of ppl who are actually strong and with nice lat activation that still have difficulties with the pullup because their grip is very weak. The more time you hang, the stronger your grip gets.

    Lose literally 2kg for "perfectly healthy" status as far as what worked for me at similar height weight ratio was just grinding the top part and negatives a lot as well as bicep curling.

    Kneeling lat pulldowns can help since the muscle activation is pretty close to what a pull-up is because you engage your core. Also inverted rows are really similar too so you should try those. The main thing with pull ups is that even some people with strong backs and decent rows will struggle for a bit because they aren’t used to using their core so much while pulling with their back, as core is the most activated in the lift. Also try chin-ups, might work more intuitively.

    The first time I ever did pull-ups orchin-ups I had never really trained for them before, I was just able to do a couple when I decided to give it a try. Until then I had done renegade rows with dumbbells and inverted rows. I did handstand push-ups against a wall for a while too and that may have helped me engage my back a little bit I guess. Anyway you may be able to work up the strength to do them with other back exercises if you don't have access to things like lat pulldowns and if you find negatives too difficult.
    Once you can do a small number of them, you can really explode your ability to do more by doing things like greasing the groove.
