"Amanda" and split snatch

I vaguely recall Coach B discussing split snatch and depth of the split. So would a split snatch for the WOD "Amanda" be acceptable assuming hip crease is below the knee? Thanks.

Press

Today at the box someone tried to tell me it's a legit strict press even when you start the bar locked out overhead. So essentially they are jerking the bar overhead to a lockout. Then the bar comes...

Re: Double Under Progression to 100 Unbroken

Thanks everyone. I've added 25 du's to my warmup everyday and when I coach, I do 50 du's cold before I leave. I plan to practice much more.
