Sorry i meant do the negative part of the pull up i.e. stand on a bench or suttin and 'preload' youself on the pull up bar and just lower yourself down slowly 3 seconds "negative part" and reapeat you should soon have the strength to achieve pull ups

If you have a pullup assited machine then use one of these and try and reduce the assistance each time untill you no longer need to use any. Alternativley if you dont have one of these you could get a step and perform negative pullups.

Deadlifts are good for traps, lower back and thickens the back. I would try and do at least 1 chin and just keep trying. If you can't do a full one, just keep trying till you can. That's what I did and I now do weighted chins/pullups. Lat pulls will help out somewhat, but they are not nearly as good. Good luck.

when doing chins get someone to hold on to your legs and spot you untill you can do them your self. Do 50 reps no matter how many times it takes you to accomplish(sp) it. I see people doing this in the gym and some of them are pretyy wide. You can try doing pullovers not sure if they will widen you but your lats sure hurt like a mofo the next day.
Are you doing chins first? If not this could be a good reason for not being able to do them.

i couldnt do them 2 months ago... I started just trying them, I couldn't do even one rep fully so i would pull up as high as I could for that one rep and hold myself there, lowering as slowly as I could now I'm doing sets of 12-15. The best way to learn something is by doing...

El Jugo Buen0, and others, how often is it okay to do pullups in the begining? Are you guys doing them every day until you get them up to speed, or are you just training them every day you train back? Thanks, my pullups need major work as well.
Also, what is the difference between a chin and a pullup?

A chin is usually an underhand, whereas a pullup is overhand
I've read that, but lets face it all pullups are chins and all chinups are pullups

Your hand position determines which back muscles are being targeted more than others. A wider grip on the bar works the lateral muscles, while a narrower grip works the middle back (trapezius).
If the standard pull-up is too difficult, try using an as sisted pull-up machine at a local gym. Follow the instructions printed on the machine most have them...
For an easier pull-up, place a chair underneath you as you do the exercise. Keep one foot on the chair and the other hanging to the side. As you raise yourself, straighten the leg that's on the chair for as sistance. Use as little as sistance from it as possible in completing the pull-up.
if you can't do pull ups very well try doing partials then keep going up more and soon you will be doing them. Also if you have someone hold your legs and you pull up its also a great way until you build up your strength.

most people don't have the grip to pull that much weight sustained.. especially when you get to 200+ lbs..
I do it with hooks..others will say to never use straps, but i like them, they have made it possible to gain alot more size in my lats..The answer to your every question

Straps help, so does a spotter. either will do iff you cant do chins do to weight.
The key here is to adapt your body to the exercise. Adaptation is the key to mass, strength, and conquer everything in body building and life
