I see guys twice my size that are able to do 5-6 wide pull ups and it's embarrassing. I always shied away from bodyweight exercises, apart from press ups and sit ups.

advice, anyone?
lower the bar to your chin level. Then just tiptoe to get 100 pull-up in 30 seconds.

Just do it slowly. Try 1, then next month, 2, then next month -3 and so on. By the end of the year, you can easily do 12.
