No lol I could do more push ups at 165lbs when I could bench 135lbs than now at 210lbs and benching 290lbs, it's a lot to do with body weight and you want to get better at push ups do push ups, maybe high rep benching would help so you turn it into an endurance exercise like push but I don't know about that

lat pulldowns, not really.
pullups is one of those exercises that you have to do on a regular bases. Lat pulldown, you can do it whenever and your numbers won't drop significantly. imo, pullups > pulldown.
benching and push ups. yes, it's how strong u r for ur weight.focus!
