Small amount + たりとも。
Often the small amount starts with a 1. １円, １分, １セント, etc.
〜たりとも．．．ない ： （1円／一日／．．．）
often with negative potential form, できない、許されない
Agree with bamboo
Besides which "Not progress" is bad English.
agree with bamboo on #5444
#5444 is awkward. You just use も in that case and say: 1センチも進まない or 1センチも進むことができない. たりとも in such cases is used to prevent or deter the progress. E.g., 1センチたりとも進ませない.
