There is a principle in the fitness world called the SAID principle. It stands for Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand. What that means is that you body will adapt in a very specific way to the exact demand you are placing on it. For example, if you were to only do pull-ups then your body will adapt to get very good at doing pull-ups (that's the "specific" part) but you won't necessarily get better at running faster.

Almost 50 attendees participated in this live 2-day workshop trying to translate science into application in order to fight against the greatest public health challenge of our century. The content of the workshop was based on an integration of theory and practice with a focus on the effects of exercise on weight management and obesity in physically inactive adults.
