Training notes:
This workout is going to be tough for muscle strength endurance..scale as much as you need to keep going.
pull up:  use all the bands or scale to ring rows or inverted barbell rows. If your pull up strength gives out... switch this movement to lat pull downs or bent over rows
push up: we love the barbell push up for training the back and the barbell push up can be raised to reduce weight
lateral skater jumps: use a plate or box and lateral jump side to side.
