You need to find the right checkpoint for this; it needs to be right next to some spikes so you can instantly die immediately after respawning.
I found one in mission 7, after you save Nestor from the club. Partway through the part where you use magnets to ride the ceiling, there will be some monster things shooting green goo across the path you need to cross. Let the goo kill you and you'll respawn right there, with spikes just inches to your right. Jump into them after respawning and achievement unlocked!
