      Lose weight if you are fat.
      Lat pull downs with good form.
      Pullup assistance machines
      Buy rubber bands and use these to do assisted pull ups. Slowly doing more reps and eventually removing bands over time

      nothing but these, easy as.

      I can verify this as well. Simple as. Just be careful if you're morbidly obese.

      How often should I practice negatives to get to being able to do a pullup?

      For sets and reps on each day, I'd do 3 sets of 5, then move up to 3 sets of 10 after a couple of days. But that's just a guess, I'm not sure anyone really knows "proper programming" for this.
      For programming across days: if you're a total noob, you can probably get away with once a day. Once your performance starts getting worse from day to day, switch to every other day.

      Good luck bro. This was me back in high school, now I'm banging out sets of 10 dead-hang pullups on the reg. Gonna start adding weight soon.

      practice form so you use the whole muscle train
      some muscles that you rarely use may hurt more at first, but in the long run you'll be able to do more

      There is one more, if you can get an open squat rack put one if the safety bars low and lie down and pull yourself up from that position. Slowly raise the safety over time till you are ready to do a full one. It is a similar progression from using the wall to do full push-ups.

        This is what I've tried, I just feel autistic if someone is waiting for the squat rack while I'm at it

        Hey there little mama.

        Get bands for assistance and practice pullups at home.

        my girlfriend started training pullups only 4 months ago with assistance bands (typical untrained very weak girl also 115lbs.)

        She can now do 2 pullups unassisted.

        I miss my brown genki childhood friend. I wish I wasn't poor so we could have hung out more.

        Agree. I usually focus on flaws that would make people more attractive. IE telling my coworker he needs to focus on getting wider shoulders before his growth plates fuse. And I almost never look at myself in the mirror, except to check my tongue when it feels dirty/dry.

    >rows
    I too recommend rows of some kind. They are not the same movement as pulls or chins obviously but they will help. I was able to do pull ups and chin ups without ever having done negatives, lat pull downs, or using assist machines or bands to do assisted pulls. I did bodyweight inverted rows, renegade rows, and other stuff like burpees which helped a bit with core stability. Curls would probably not hurt, people on IST make a big deal out of how chin ups use biceps more than pull ups and pull ups use other muscles more than chin ups, but the difference is small and pull ups will still use your biceps. I am talking about overhanded grip (pull ups) and underhanded grip (chin ups) if that wasn't clear.
    Once you can do a couple chins or pulls you are good to go, you can do small sets of less than your max and start increasing your strength in them by a lot. If you can do chins but not pulls, do more chins. There is a carryover and I know this from personal experience. I basically never do pull ups except for warmups but my max number has increased steadily as I have gotten better at chin ups, both weighted and unweighted.

    The toughest part of a pull-up is the start, when your arms are fully extended. So a technique is to start from a step stool / bench where your arms aren't fully extended, maybe 3/4 extended or even 1/2 if 3/4 is too hard. Then as you get stronger, gradually try fully extended pull-ups until you've got it.

    You'll get there.
