    I just did 3 sets of max reps few min rest between sets, 3 times a week for a couple of months and went from 10,10,8 to 20,18, 17 until I fucked my shoulder with a unrelated injury

    I'd say keep doing what you're doing and go for negatives when you can't do any additional reps anymore (jump up to the bar and lower yourself in a very slow and controlled manner).

    Pull-ups tend to respond well to overall volume. So, do more pull-ups.

    try wearing weights to increase resistance, then reps with no extra weight should be easier

    Greasing the groove. Do a few reps every time you pass by a pull-up bar.

    I had a period where I stopped doing barbell lifts of any kind and all I did was pull ups. I'm sure it's not a great strategy for working maximal strength. But every day that I went to the gym during that period (usually 5-6 times), I would always start off with 50-100 pull ups no matter how many sets it took me. That's how I got my pull ups to over 30. But again, I was shit at the compound lifts so if you're looking to gain maximal strength I wouldn't recommend this but it worked great for my pull up total.

    The best way to do more pullups is to cut weight. The less you weigh the more you do.
