This varies from person to person. I have been able to teach kids to do it in a few minutes yet some adults it will take hours, days, weeks, or never. The most important thing is to have the strength in your ankles and legs in order to do the underpush without having your ankles cave in. There are a few exercises that can help with this if needed. I 2nd what Kentek said, it is easier to help if we can see how you skate.
