What you can do is set a number of pullups and pushups lets say 25 of each. And dont stop till you reach that number. You shoudnt care about how long or how many sets it takes. Even a 1 rep set is good. After a while of reaching this number you will notice you will make longer sets and get to this number faster. Then its time to increase the number.

Specially for push ups the tabata training Bryan suggested is quite effective.

But dont let the rest periods be too long. Keep the momentum going.

I reached 30 tops. It was just a matter of doing them every day and it will increase slowly. I stopped after I got sick, I've changed up my routine since then.
