Hopefully you've found your own groove with these things, but here's how I work on them:
1. Learn the ostinato.
2. Familiarize yourself with the entire page as written.
3. Play the entire page at your chosen tempo, 4-8 times on each exercise, each way, without stopping:
- Short workout: Left hand on snare drum only.
- Medium workout:: Left hand does minimal tom moves.
- Long workout: Left hand does all tom moves.
