I recently connected with the folks at ‘Fitness Professional Online’ and spoke with Doug Holt there. We touched on a number of MMA-related and DB Strength-related topics. It’s always great to chat with like-minded individuals and Doug is dialed in and doing some great things up in Santa Barbara, CA.

Here’s the clip of the interview:
