Just got back online, did a quick search will this help?

It looks pretty uncomplicated from what I read..

PHP Code:
https://www.tomsguide.com/us/samsung-galaxy-s5-guide,review-2821-4.html 
Lots of links here on YouTube on how to Root them.

Here is another how to..

We do not post live links that direct members to other sites unless they have been approved, this link has not
PHP Code:
https://theunlockr.com/how-to-root-the-samsung-galaxy-s5-active-2/ 
They say you need to download 2 things
They have live links on that article to get them.

Odin
Download Odin and save to your desktop

CF Root
Download CF-Root and save to your desktop


c/p the unlockr dot com

It seems Towelroot doesn’t work well on the newer builds of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. So we thought we’d find a new way to gain root on this device and we actually succeeded in it. We now have Chainfire’s easy root method to root the Galaxy S5 Active, that usually only takes a couple of minutes to properly root the device. Here’s how:



Rooting is the process of gaining administrative rights on your Android device. Once we root our Android device, we can then make changes to it to customize it well beyond what it normally can do.
Once you have root access on your Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, you’ll be able to:
  • Remove apps that were preinstalled by your carrier/manufacturer from your device.
  • Free up storage space (because of the above benefit).
  • Increase battery life (apps that might have been running constantly can be removed).
  • Increase performance (after removing apps that are always running, the device will be less bogged down and run smoother).
  • Update to a new version of Android (by flashing a custom recovery/ROM, see the end of this procedure for more info on that).
  • Tons of other customizations when you use your new found administrative rights to flash a custom ROM (again, see the end of this procedure for more info on that).
Interested? Here’s how to root your Samsung Galaxy S5 Active:
I. Before You Begin

1. This’ll void the warranty of your device. We won’t be held responsible if you end-up bricking or damaging your device. Do it at your own risk.
2. This only works for the SM-G870W variant of the device.



3. This should only work on Windows based PCs.
4. You should’ve appropriate drivers installed on your PC. If you don’t, go ahead and get the latest drivers installed from here.
II. Downloading Required Files

1. Download Odin and save it to your desktop.
Odin
2. Download CF-Root and save it to your desktop.
CF-Root



III. Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active

1. Uncompress files from both Odin and CF-Root to your desktop by right-clicking on each of them and selecting Extract here.
2. Launch Odin by double-clicking on its executable file.
3. When it launches, click on PDA and it’ll let you choose a file that you can flash on your device. Choose the CF-Root file that exists on your desktop.
4. Make sure Repartition is unchecked in the Odin. It’s important.
5. Feel free to checkmark the boxes that say Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time as they’re harmless.
6. Turn OFF your device.



7. Turn it back on in Download mode. To do that, hold down Volume DOWN, Home, and Power buttons together.
8. A warning message should appear on your screen. Hit Volume UP to continue.
9. You should now be in Download mode.
10. Plug in your device to your PC via USB cable.
11. Click on Start in the Odin. It’ll start flashing CF-Root on your device.
12. When CF-Root is flashed, your device should automatically reboot.



13. You’re all set!
Wonderful! Your Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is now rooted and you can confirm the same by installing Root Checker from the Google Play store.
You can click here to find all of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active How To’s.
You can also find all of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active ROMs we have here.

I've done tons of research and reading and I would like to install Pie 9.0 on my rooted Samsung S5 but if I install TWRP it's jammed on the bootloader and saying that I can't reboot in TWRP it'a stuck in Odin mode. For the life in me what the hell am I doing wrong?
I've got all the files to upgrade and make this phone a real beast but I can't go past the rebooting in Odin, I hold down the volume up the home button and the power button but it's not going anywhere. 2 days I've been at this phone to update it I'm loosing my marbles here. The phone is rooted

Thanks guys both are very well explained but when it comes to boot the device in TWRP this is where my problem is I just can't and it's installed on my phone but it just doesn't want to boot in TWRP. I hold down vol up, home and power and the bootloader comes up not the TWRP. Once I can get it to boot in TWRP I will be good to go that is my problem right now.
