Technically the viper, but to his credit he didn't even really claim it because it was only one assignment. One of his only conversations with me where I had to give him some credit. From what I recall, his assignments: FAIP, one Viper tour, aide-de-camp, school, nerd school, staff, then to Vance for touch-and-go as DO and his command. There was a late rate thrown in there for either post-USAFA (surprise) masters or something. That timeline reflects everything that is wrong with how we groom leaders: no operational experience, never credible in an MWS, several non-CAF/MAF assignments; he's basically a career ball-washer.
Take a dude like that, thrust him into a flying command and its no surprise when he self-induces a dual compressor stall going out the top of the airspace and almost loses one of the jets. Complete shitshow.
Shack with the hydration. Haven't found sleep to be a big factor, but everyone's physiology is different. Avoid alcohol the day prior.
Are you asking for the centrifuge (0/10 would not recommend..)? Get AFE to get your g suit as tight as you can stand for that. The new G suit (ATAGS) helps a ton.
Don't run, lift. I wouldn't sweat it too much as resting g tolerances vary greatly and you won't really know until you're there. G tolerance also builds with experience.
I've heard an F-35 can sustain well over 3.5g's (at low fuel weights) so make sure you're ready! Cheers.
