For the anaerobic power tests, your training should be repeated maximal efforts with about 45 seconds to a minute rest between. Build up to at least twelve efforts by adding 1 per week. Twice per week is probably adequate for this workout.
For the flexibility, here's one area where even doing it every day isn't enough. If you do it properly (without stretching into the pain zone) several sessions spaced throughout the day will help much more than a single session per day.
Try to find out more about the obstacle course. Often these have a high degree of skill involved so if you can practice the movements in addition to your general physical preparedness that will probably help.
How would I train for the lower and upper body
anaerobic tests exactly? They don't have those machines at the gym I go to. I have a bike that I ride at home when the weather is nice, and I plan to do that next year to get ready for the lower body, but the upper seems to be a problem for me.
Maybe I will try and go watch a fitness test
in action or something. Specifically that obstacle course.
Thanks for the help guys.
