Check out these pull up progressions that you can do to help you get closer to those pull ups.
Try the most difficult variation that you can do 120% of your goal rep #. For instance, if you want to be able to do 10 strict pull ups, pick the pull up progression that you can do 12 of in a row. Then try performing 5 sets of 8 of this pull up variation with a 2 minute rest between sets.
