    Easy Method:

    This can only be done from the Challenges menu, as this is the only one that contains overtime.

    You can literally stand there for most of the drill. Then with a few seconds left you can start moving, but for this achievement you can do far less than what is required. Instead of jumping with both of your feet, lift one leg at a time over the imaginary hurdles. Imagine it like if you were stepping over a trip wire or something. You can go relatively slow without the instructor stopping the drill. They’ll give you advice saying that you should use both feet, but ignore the advice and use the one step at a time method.

    Once you think a good 20 seconds of overtime has passed, then run into a hurdle to put a stop to the drill and the achievement will unlock.

    Go to "personal training", "challenges", "hardcore hurdles", and start the drill. You can skip the warm-up drills if you want to without it affecting the achievement.

    For this one, like the other "sudden death" achievements, it DOES NOT matter how well you do while the timer is counting down. Conserve your energy while doing the timed part of the drill.

    When the trainer says "get ready for sudden death", prepare yourself. You do not need to jump very quickly to stay alive, but you need to make sure you jump high enough and far enough so you don't hit ANY of the hurdles. Hitting a hurdle even the slightest bit will immediately end the drill in sudden death.

    Key Points:
    1) take your time
    2) line up your jumps before rushing to failure
    3) focus on "quality over quantity" of your jumps
    4) save some of your energy during the timed portion of the drill so you can keep going when it sudden death

    You just need to keep jumping and not hit any hurdles for 20 seconds after entering sudden death and the achievement will pop after you hit a hurdle and end the drill (as long as you stayed alive for more than 20 seconds).
