Pull-ups start from the dead position on the bar. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom. Start pulling yourself; chin has to go above the bar that’s the basic requirement in the pull up.  Down to the starting position and go up again.

If you are not able to perform pull-ups then you can perform ring row.

Superset 2: Dumbbell Snatch| Box Jump

Dumbbell starts from the floor and going to be finished overhead. Place the dumbbell between your legs, hips have to be at the knees and shoulders have to be high. 

From that position deadlift the dumbbell all the way up to knee, explosively extended your hips, shrug the shoulders catch the dumbbell in the partial spot and stand up straight. Do all the snatches alternatively.

Box Jump is an explosiveness movement. This exercise is beneficial in all the sports that involve jumping.  There are couple of things that you have to take care in performing box jump- when you jump and land that your knees don’t collapse in.

If you didn’t ever did this exercise then don’t go with too much height keep it short.

Superset 3: Double-Under | Toes to Bar

Double-under is an agility and coordination exercise.  Basically in one skip you jump twice.  It takes an enormous amount of practise to perform this exercise but if you are beginner try single under.

Hold hand slightly in front of hips. Jump a few inches off the ground keeping torso upright with body straight. Spin wrists so the rope passes the feet twice with every jump.

For toes to bar let your shoulders and torso move back behind the bar.  Make sure that you can pull your torso back. Touch your both feet to the bar and go back to the arch position then hollow body position, touch the bar again.

It’s the slightly advance form of gymnastics.
