I was wondering what would be the best way to practice ten ups?

The best way to practice is to do them.

I wouldn't do anything less than a 1 min interval. DO NOT DO THIS ALONE. Only practice these types of events with a buddy/lifeguard who is actively watching you and prepared to get you out and perform CPR.
