In brief: Muscle building

Exercises that cause muscle tendons to pull on bones stimulates more calcium to be deposited in that bone.
So working muscles against weights or other resistance does more for the bone than aerobic exercises. So lifting weights or doing exercises like pushups that use your own weight against gravity promote bone strength.
