Poor pulling power

So as part of my back and shoulder workout I incorporated some weighted pull ups into my sets.  I was very disappointed in just how poor my pulling power was.  I couldn’t even get one rep cleanly with 60 extra pounds, stalling out at eye height.  There was a point in time where I got a +90lb pull up with my bodyweight 10 pounds less than it is right now.
