Alternate Picking Question.

Well I have currenly gotten back into playing guitar and have been learning some Lamb of God songs, my problem is I have a bad habbit of being to comfortable using only down strokes, to correct this problem I have been playing the songs using alternate picking and practicing to a metronome. I can do most of the songs at about 80 bpm and was wondering is this is the proper way to break in alternate picking habbit. The songs range from 120-160 bpm, my plan is to gain about 2 bpm a week as I develop.

Anyways does this sound like a good way of developing a great base for alternate picking and metal playing in general? Open to suggestion.
