First read FreeBSD Handbook section here:

Then its like that:
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make kernel KERNCONF=GENERIC KODIR=/boot/testing
# nextboot -k testing
# sync
# reboot

--- (if new kernel works)
# cd /boot
# mv kernel OLD
# mv testing kernel
# cd /usr/src
# mergemaster -p
# make installworld
# mergemaster -iU
# sync
# reboot

--- (optional)
# make delete-old
# make delete-old-libs

You'll also need to decide what you want to track. Last I checked, they haven't created RELENG_7_1 branch yet, but you can update RELENG_7. This will have you tracking FreeBSD 7-STABLE. If you want to upgrade just to 7.1 when it becomes a -RELEASE, you'll want to wait until it's released and then track RELENG_7_1. Check the /usr/share/examples/cvsup files for some details regarding this, and also the documentation section regarding the release engineering process on freebsd.org (I can't remember if it's a handbook document or not, but it's on there somewhere.)
