There are no tricks to fast picking. Its just practice, practice... and when you thought that was enough, its more practice. I can pick very fast using alternating, i still need to work on my all downpicking speed. Basically just practice.

When you are don't just shoot for the super speed either. its better to pick a little slower but very accurately, and over time step up the speed. It defenitely takes a lot of pratice to get fast. Just keep at it. Also if your coordination is good enough you can even work on your left hand fretting speed at the same time. That's what i've been working on lately. As for exercises, i'm a little to lazy to post any. There are tons of them out there though.
