Tips for Better Pullups

Pull-ups (Negatives)
If you cannot do any pull-ups, you should try “negatives”. Negatives  are half pull-ups. All you have to do is get your chin over the bar by  standing on something or having spotter push you over the bar. Then, you  slowly lower yourself all the way down - let your arms hang grasping  the bar fully stretched. Keep your feet up and fight gravity for a count  of 5 seconds. This will get your arms used to supporting your weight.

Negative pullups are so good for building strength if you cannot yet do a full pullup. They are so hard, but amazing! Start with 5 seconds and build up. Currently I am taking 8 seconds to lower myself down. Your lats will definitely feel it the next day!
