Former Navy SEAL Team 6 Member Mark Owen Gets Down and Dirty at Fire Range

Watch as former Navy SEAL Team 6 Member Mark Owen takes you out on an epic journey at his rogue outdoor firing range.

High speed low drag shooting tactics.

Mark shoots multiple weapons and loads of rounds while hitting his target nearly every time.

Mark’s expert marksmanship is not only a sight to see but also shows the dedication and hard work the Navy SEAL Teams put into this practice so that they can be ready for anything.

Mark Owen is from a remote village population 500 to 700 people in Alaska where he graduated his Senior year as ValVictorian of only 3 graduating students that year. He drove a snowmobile to school each day.

He bought his first assault rifle – AR-15 — from his History teacher between classes, put the gun in his locker until the end of the day then brought it home. Mark did a lot of moose hunting to help feed the family.

Growing up in Alaska taught Mark how to be comfortable being uncomfortable because of the extreme winter weather. It also taught him how to break everything down one bite at a time because survival in extreme situations takes focus.

It also helped him with the evolutions at BUD/S and breaking them down even further.

Each BUD/S class student does the following:

  • Runs 1,627 Miles
  • Swims 134.2 miles
  • Runs the Obstacle Course 39 times
  • Conducts 42 Dives, spending 61 hours under water
  • Each Class Shoots 1,413,000 rounds of small arms ammunition
  • Each Class Detonates 13,382 pounds of high explosives
  • You hike or patrol 150 miles
  • You complete a combat conditioning course 12 mile run, wearing 70 pounds of gear, to complete in 3 hours or less

Then is you add it all up, the equivalent is basically swimming from Cuba to the southern tip of Florida and then running all the way to New York City.

Question: If you were training for BUDS right now how would you do it?

Answer: I wrote the Freak Frogman Ebook for my son and I detailed exactly how I would train both the mental and physical to survive and thrive in BUDS.

I wrote this ebook for my son and would use the same methods if I were going to BUDS in 6 months.

We also have athletes that are using this same ebook to build lean muscle and burn excess fat to live a healthier lifestyle.

We have several athletes that have used this ebook to train for GORUCK events and Spartan Races.

I would recommend this to anyone training for Spec Ops or just looking to build their body to an elite level.

If I were going to BUDS next year this is exactly the ebook I would want to use to train with.

Question: I am working out hard at the gym with weights trying to gain some muscle (I am 150 lbs but gaining) and also running to get ready for BUDS. Do you recommend a protein powder that is good and clean?

Answer: Yes; I personally use Ascent Protein and have been using it for my gym workouts and also long distance off road bike rides.

It is easy to mix an goes down well and does not break the bank for how good a quality it is.
