Increase weighted pull ups

Anyone know of a program or system to increase weighted pull up strength? I know about Armstrong for bodyweight but I'm looking to add lbs.
Thanks

Re: Increase weighted pull ups

Weighted pullups I think would work with a linear progression - usually they are an assistance exercise but I think it would work the same way.

Linear progression for as long as you can, then something like 5/3/1 percentages. Or Armstrong with weights would probably do the job too.

FM or grease the groove would also work...

Also true. Your body will adapt to increased volume of weighted pullups in exactly the same way that it adapts to more volume on unweighted pullups.

Re: Increase weighted pull ups

If you're dedicating your whole program to this, I say grease the groove with 50% reps of your max and with 50% of the weight used for your max 6-10 times throughout the day. Assistance exercises for your triceps such as DB roll backs or tate presses will also be a big help.
