    a few inches wider than shoulders will work everything sufficiently, no need to go super wide puts alot of unecessary strain on your bicep tendon

    bro, honestly any width is fine as long as you can feel the stretch of your back. What i mean is probably a inch away from the shoulder width or you can grip shoulder width.

    Personally I pull my chest up to the bar and I consider this a full rep. This is followed by a controlled negative all the way down, to dead hang.

    this.
    also, when you're doing the pullup, try to imagine pulling with your elbows instead of your hands or whatever, that helped me use my back more
