Not sure how to start a new topic.........Crossfit veterans, if the goal is 21 reps for pull-ups. Which is a better approach, unassisted broken sets of 7-5-5-3 or assisted (Mini-band) 21 reps unbroken?

Doing one or the other is good, doing both is better. Finding other ways to meet your goals and doing them is even better...Not sure if you mean within a workout (like Fran for example) or as a goal for your maximum reps.

To clarify I am talking about a Fran like workout.

It is better to, if you are able, get your body used to doing 21 reps of full pull-ups, regardless of the breakup. Get the reps in, and you will see definite improvement.

The more varied your approach, the more likely you are to achieve your goal.

Pure pull ups, Band assisted, jumping, L, weighted, change the stimulus frequently.

The best way to get to a number of pull ups is do do them as often as possible. 3 or 4 times a day at least, do some kind of pull up work. You don't want to go to failure. Just get some practice in (if you are at 5 max reps now, do 4 or 10 assisted ones, etc).
