Default Coaching Cues for Jerk

I have reread a bunch of stuff on the Jerk and I need some simple ways to coach myself.

I struggle with jerking anything over 155 lb's. Which is very frustrating and I think partly psychological as I can push press pretty much the same amount.

Right now I tell myself dip, drive and lock out. I don't think I am getting enough leg drive maybe and I have a problem with transitioning my hands from the catch to the press portion of the jerk.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
