    Pull close to your sides and to the waist.

    This engages the lats to an increasing degree.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    If you can grab on to the top of the frame of your squat rack, use that to do pullups

    Lift smart.

    I rear ended a car this morning...the driver that got out of the other car was a dwarf !!
    He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!"
    So I said, "Well, which one ARE you then?"
    That's how the fight started.

    Excuses excuses, lol... I'm around your size, 6'3" 226.5 as of this morning and I use wide grip pull ups instead of pull downs because I like them and the functionality of the lift more. I started out doing negatives (start in the top position, lower/pause, lower/pause), and have worked up to sets of 5 so far. Alternatively, you can use lower the bar or use a stool, and use your legs, or a spotter to help lift you when you stall.

    I'm seeing good results from them, I can do more than 5, but when I hit 7 or 8 I can barely get a second set in, so I do more smaller sets. Keep at it, it's a great exercise, and is very functional, it will help you if you ever need to pull yourself up to escape a familly of rabid badgers by climbing into a tree.

    Do negatives. That is how you will build up your ability to do pullups. Not hanging upside down with dumbells....not assisted pullup machines. Just negatives. The Eccentric (lowering) part of the movement.
    Lift smart.

    I rear ended a car this morning...the driver that got out of the other car was a dwarf !!
    He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!"
