Start with a beginners Workout, this should be around 40 seconds or about 40 repetitions, create sets of 3 and then take a quick break. You can increase the intensity once you feel you can do more. You can modify your workouts as you improve increasing the intensity and duration of your repetitions.
Look at the Alpha training to find and complement your workouts.
