For the workouts, is it all supposed to be accomplished all at once in the same setting, or is it okay to break it up?

You can break it up if you need to.  That's not a big deal, just make sure you get it all in. I have many clients who work full time or work 18 hours a day, or 24hr shifts and they break up their workouts too. You have to find a way to make it work with your schedule.

How should I start my training so it's not too hard on my body?

No matter what you do, it will be hard on your body, but there are things you can do to make yourself more resilient. First off, I would start a phased workout plan that involves different focuses over time. So I would start with running then go to swimming, then Cals, then rucking, and so on. Increase the weight you are able to carry and make your body used to it in order to reduce injury chances later on.

Advice on how to prepare for Selection? What should I do now to set myself up for success later?

In the business of saving lives no one in the world can compare to a PJ. A corpsman and a combat medic also save lives but aren’t involved in such a way as a PJ. In order to graduate you need to be 100% dedicated to it, there is no half assing. In order to prepare there are a couple things I would recommend. First challenge yourself, find a group of people who are going to go hike up a mountain or swim in the ocean whatever it is to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. It is also important to train with like minded people who will push you to be better. Next of course I have to recommend checking out my website/youtube channel and Workout programs, I am dedicated to ensuring people who have a true desire to be a PJ realize their goals and have put my knowledge as the lead instructor of Indoc into these workouts.

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

The best way to practice is to do them. You can do some pushups on the side of the pool till you get tired, then  dive in, do you under water and do the same thing try to monitor you interval and see how you do. 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.
