Default Jerk Issues

Hey there.

So I've been lifting for about a year (learned basic olympic lifts in Crossfit the year before). My snatch pr is 108 and clean is 130. My clean and jerk pr is 118 (I've had 123 overhead, but got three red lights). I still have trouble getting 110-115 up consistently.

118kg

123kg (fail)

My gym has two small platforms and bumper plates (which is awesome), but we don't have jerk blocks. My coach and I have talked about making some, but we don't have anywhere to put them other than the platforms.

Is there anything I can be doing to get my jerk weights up without the help of jerk blocks?

Thanks!
