On the jerks, you could have dropped your hips down a little to absorb the weight with the legs and get that lockout. The cue for that would be to keep the back knee soft. It looks like you stick the split and then relied on the punch a little too much. It's tricky when people are going for a 1rep max; sometimes the technique is fine but they're just not strong enough to execute the lift. A lot of coaches will just give their lifters a few (3 or 4) attempts at a certain weight if it's a strength issue.

You're snatches are the same way. I think that was just too big of a jump from 105 to 110. I would have gone to 107 or 108 and then 110. But it's definitely a weight that is achievable.
