Gimbal lock, we all know it, we all hate it. It has been my experience that most students, and many professional animators, don't have have a good work flow for dealing with it, myself included when I first starting working. Thankfully one of the animators quickly pulled me aside and fixed that. Keith Lango recently posted a video on gimble lock, and he does a really good job of not only providing solutions, but more importantly articulating the mechanics behind it, why it happens in the first place. I think even if you already know about the euler filter and manual workflow, its worth your time to watch.
