Hi Timothy, check out these two lessons :

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/How-To-Play-Hammer-ons/
Check video parts 3 to 8 for demo of different hammer-on exercises. Please note that I'm using a drum track instead of the metronome there, but you can substitute it for a metronome click and still play the same note durations.

Check out video parts 3 to 8 for ideas on different ways to exercise pull-offs.

Now, what I'd like to suggest is to practice only the movement you need currently going from flat 7 interval to the root note. You can change fingers you use, to get strength in different "finger combinations".

Which exact part in the Syncopated Blues lesson you are having trouble with?

If it is the fast "trill" that happens in the video part one which is "open D string to 2nd fret pull off-hammer-on combo".... I'd suggest just using that same section as an exercise. Start up the metronome click and play straight 8th notes for start. Then speed up the metronome gradually (or switch to playing 16th notes duration). That trill is fast and it might take a bit of practice to get it right but it is very important to start slow as there is a hammer-on followed by pull-off combination here. Both movements and techniques need to be executed well. Especially since only the first note is picked and then the following hammer-ons need to be really strong in order to keep the string vibrating. Don't underestimate the pull-off here, when pulling off you need to sort of "flick down" and pluck the string with your finger. This will sound the open D string note and make the string vibrate which makes the string ready for an aggressive hammer-on which follows.

Please let me know how this goes?

Your right about not underestimating the pull-offs. In the lesson I concentrated on the hammer-ons and not the pull-offs letting what comes natural. Absolutely brotha!
