4.) Power off phone completely.
5.) Hold Home and Volume-(down), keep them pressed and power the phone on.
6.) Press Volume+(up) when prompted to enter "Downloading Mode"
7.) Connect USB and wait for all drivers to finish installing.
8.) Open Odin3 (Run as administrator), then browse for twrp-SM-J320P.img.tar.md5 in "AP" slot.
9.) As soon the MD5 check completes click on START button of Odin, the download procedure will start, wait until it ends.
10.) Power off phone completely.
11.) Hold Home and Volume+(up), keep them pressed and power the phone on, phone will turn on and load recovery menu. (*1)
12.) Once in TWRP recovery, swipe right to allow modifications.
13.) Tap Install then select BETA-SuperSU-v2.74-2-20160519174328.zip

Doubts? Please check this video:

Note (*1):
On some phones Android replace the recovery image with the stock one during the reboot, so follow these steps in such case:
a.)Open Odin and click on Options tab, then deselect Auto Reboot.
b.)Flash TWRP with Odin, the phone won't automatically reboot because you had untick the above flag, so when the percentage reach 100 on phone and Odin say PASS, turn the phone off by pressing down POWER button and VOLUME DOWN button until screen turns off, release the buttons as soon the phone turns off else it will turn on again.
c.)Disconnect the USB cable.
d.)From phone powered off, push and hold HOME, VOLUME+(up) and POWER button, release the buttons as soon you see "Recovery is not seandroid enforcing", phone will load TWRP.
