Continue to do the pull-ups and add in barbell rows, deadlifts, t-bar rows, cable rows etc.

If you want to do more pull-ups...do more pull-ups. Do a lot of sets throughout the day, but not to failure, pavel goes into more detail: http://www.cbass.com/Synaptic.htm . Work on jumping pull-ups and negatives, just do every variation you can think of and constantly change your grip. Learn how to kip, it should improve your dead hang numbers by a lot - and you would probably get your goal of 8 pull-ups very quickly with kipping ones.

Do them at least 4 times a day. You cna even do them first in your training session. I always find with pullup sthat the more often you do them, the more you can do.

Handstand pushups work good, too. Strengthens your shoulders/arms real nice.

How would this help with pull ups in a great way? Not only is it mostly the opposing muscles, but they are usually even harder to do than pullups for most people.. :scratch:
