welcome o SF steve - i hope you are going to enjoy yourself here.
not much advice at the moment - the advice will come once you start asking specific questions.
in the mean time, pace yourself, concentrate on form and have fun!!!!

look on youtube to make sure your form is perfect on your pullups; go very slowly up and down, and start from a dead hang. If they're easy then that's great, and you'll be able to start at a higher level with more reps of pullups off the bat. Welcome!

Steve, if you cannot do pull-ups (palms facing away), then chin-ups are an acceptable substitute, imo. Try to do alternating grips (one palm facing, one away) if possible.

I disagree about the slow up and slow down - especially on the race against the clock workouts. I kip.
