I've recently worked up to a PR of 7-8 max pull-ups with a neutral grip. At what point is it recommended to start adding in weighted pull-ups?
Good point, of course. In general, since most strength work is done with relatively low reps, moving from a 7-8RM weight to a 5RM weight, around these parts, would be a good thing - but doing 5's with a 7-8 RM weight is also fine.+1 to what Steve said. It might also depend somewhat on what your goals are.
What results did you obtain following the two programs in conjunction?After taking a several month break from pull ups I did Strong First team leader Tim Almond's 6 week program.

Then I did Pavel's 4 week Ladders Reloaded program for weighted pull ups from MILO.
@Tarzan has some good recommendations in this thread:
