You're not alone there! After a couple years of lifting, I still haven't really improved my pull-ups any. They're just a difficult exercise, period. I always do them assisted because I want to do sets of 8-12 reps for all my assistance work, and I'm nowhere near being able to 8 pullups unassisted! :oops:
