    Recently when I've been doing pullups I have used a different grip for each set.

    My first set would be wide grip, me second would be a closer grip, and my third would be hammer grip.

    Do you guys think this is a good way to go about them?..... or should I use the same grip for each set and maybe switch it up every week or so?

    Variation is always good. Just remember to try and do more each session.

    yeah I'm not expecting too much progress because I am actually trying to drop some pounds right now, but My reps have increased mostly because I have lost a few pounds making them easier hahaha.

    Yeah just keep doing more each day and it'll get easier as you get lighter and stronger.

    I'd say it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you switch the grip at all.

    Yeah, as long as you focus on doing more and more reps rather than the novelty of switching grips, you have nowhere else to go but up.............in reps/strength

    Try a couple slow negative reps when you reach your RM.

    I like to start wide, then go to shoulder width(my most comfortable width), then when i'm weakest/tired i do hammer.

    The main thing about pullups is just doing lots of them.

    You could probably do 4 variations.

    Hammer, wide, shoulder-width, and chins. I'm thinking about doing some hammer grip pullups as well.
