Talking Strengthening Pull Ups

A pull-up is an upper-body strength exercise. The pull-up is a closed-chain movement where the body is suspended by the hands and pulls up. As this happens, the elbows flex and the shoulders adduct and extend to bring the elbows to the torso.

Better to do less reps of unmodified activity, or intended reps but modified

For example if doing 30 squats, is it better to do 30 squats that are not full squats (for instance, squatting but stopping much before thighs are parallel to the ground), or is it better to do 15 squats that are with proper technique?
