A Tip For Today
For today's barbell cycling, we notice when people start moving quickly, they stop using their hips properly.  When your knees dive forward and your hip shuts off, you decrease your power output dramatically.  When you dip, focus on keeping your chest up tall and pretend your sitting your butt on a tall bar stool.  This will load the posterior chain, allowing you to fire your glutes to produce power and not push through your calves.
