i have a pr of 28 dead hang pullups. the last few of the 28 were sloppy, but the chin went over the bar. no place to do kipps
i did this 5-6 months ago. a few times since then , i tried for a new pr and stalled out at 22.
my weekly pullup workouts are monday, i do either GTG sets anywhere from 13-18, 5-6-7-8 times a day, or, a few sets of 15, then sets of 4or 5's with very short rests... when i do the 15,15, then 10-15 sets of 4 or 5 i am sore then next day. never from the GTG when i do sets of 13-18.
i always try to get 100 in no matter what kind of workout i do.
then on friday, i do weighted pullups, starting with 25# in the backpack, and i go up in 10# increments to 65# for a single. i do a few singles with 65#, total of weighted pullups -25 reps.

but my pr stays the same at 22 these past few tests.
any kinda new workouts, or just keep the same ones going???
i'm 53, 6' 145# thanks

You could try density training.

Take a week off from all pull-ups and related movements.

Then go for a new PR. You might be surprised.
