    Lat pulldowns. Do them until you are repping >= your bodyweight.

    You're subhuman until you are able to do pullups, period. Practice. You CAN do it. Don't fricking give up and choose the easy way out.

    Neither. Get a stool, do assisted pull ups with your feet on it.

    Neither one is better than the other for getting good at pushups. They both have their place. Lat pulldowns (as well as tricep pulldowns) isolate and develop the primary muscles involved in doing pullups, but don't strengthen the motor pattern required for them. Assisted pullups are good for developing the motor patterns and cues to do strict pullups (including core bracing, missing from lat pulldowns) but aren't as efficient in developing strength.

    Id say assisted pull ups, and also just doing negatives. Just know that there are many forms to a pull up, most people will think a single pull up is simply getting your head about the bar, while others believe it involves bending backwards a little bit to get your chest to touch the bar. Getting the chest to the bar is much harder, so maybe u could try those on assisted pull ups as well.

    Ultimately, if you want to do a pull up, either will be good and you just gotta lose weight and gain strength if you cant right now. Doing negatives I think is the best as you can feel what its like actually doing one with your body hanging under you.

    You get pull ups like this:
    >hanging with a focus on squeezing to break the bar
    >attempts at pulling up
    >negatives going up to whatever height you feel comfortable

    You do this everyother day and within a month you'll get it.
    Next.
    How to increase your repetitions?
    Pull ups everyday. Make sure to always hang for 30 to 1 minute, they will condition your hands, mainly.

    I also recommend being a little gay and using straps, it's kind of hard to tell, but the forearm bottle neck will slow down your progress. It's not only being able to hang, but also being able to squeeze hard enough for your back muscles to work well enough. (you'll notice that with straps, reps will become easier).
    I can also hang with one hand at 85kg, so I'm not sure my grip is terrible. I should be well off with that amount of strength, but I'm not.

    do pull-ups with a band or a stool, neither of these will help you do pull-ups at all.

          They give you the illusion of improvement, in reality it doesn't train the muscles nearly enough to do a proper pull up. The progress will be incredibly slow. I went from being able to 0 pull ups to 10, just by doing bar pull ups and lat pull downs. once you can do at least 2 reps of a proper pull up, ditch these exercises and train the pull ups themselves.

    reversals worked for me. Just get a bench or a box and start at the up position and lower yourself down. They by themselves wont do it for you.

    Pullups suck because their so hard to train until you can actually do one, and once you can progress immediately picks up.
