I would do some weighted ones, strap a 25 pound weight on and see how many you can do.

How are you with the run? I spent my Navy career at 5'10", roughly 200 lbs., passing bodyfat measurements by the skin of my teeth, but was consistently able to outrun 95% of the people I was with, with a run time around 9 minutes for a 1.5 mile run. The main thing I always told people was to focus on their breathing. In through the nose, out through the mouth, big deep breathes. Don't pant. Don't breath instride. Don't take short, quick breathes. Let your legs run, focus on how you breath when you run. It helped me immensely when it came to improving my run times.

For pull-ups, I've seen people that struggle throw a resistance band around the bar and use the handles as stirrups.
