Yes, try doing isometric holds at the top of the movement and how far are your reps from full ROM? If its a little then keep doing those reps and you should eventually be able to do full ROM. Front lever work would also increase lat strength.

Try rows or chins 2-3 times a week with the reps in the 5-10 range, and I bet you get better results.
Well, hot damn, I never considered this. I will keep working in higher rep ranges, then. Right now I'd been trying to do some max effort back work as my hamstring's hurt so it's limited my training options, but I guess it's back to the programming drawing board.
