Test Day - First 32kg Jerk Set

Monday is becoming test day. Today I attempted my first jerk set with the 32kg and it went amazingly well. All of my work with the 28s is paying off.

Warm Up: Rib Pull/Arm Sweep/Swing/OAJ/Jerk/Snatch
Jerk(2x32kg) 5 minutes @ 6 rpm
Snatch(28kg) 8 minutes @ L 14/14/14/12 ---> R 14/14/14/10

Felt like I just hit the wall on the snatches. I am always amazed how fast I fall apart on the snatches. I can be feeling great going past the 3 minute mark and then all of a sudden the bottom falls out. Stopped early on both sides due to hand/grip issues. Below are video clips of my sets:

It sure looks like the handle positioning in the palm is pretty flat for most reps - your very first rep is angled sharply, but then it starts to flatten out pretty quickly. It might be something to look at.
