If you're talking about exercises it's just like a sport. You have to concentrate on just the right muscles for each technique.

Genres, however, are a musical thing not a technique thing. If you have good technique it will help you play any genre.

So what you're looking for is a combination of technique exercises combined with learning songs in different genres.

play some black metal if you're into that. trem picking galore! i usually play some of that after chugging some heavy riffs as part of my RH warmup.

This, but I'll suggest some songs anyway that helped me a lot with technique.

Alaska - Between the Buried and Me
Bloom - Scale the Summit
Scarified - Racer X (still can't play this one at full speed )

Helped me... get a dumbell (not too heavy but not light) wide enough so that you can hold the handle with both hands... Rotate it in your hands, not flipping it... As though you were rolling tin foil or something similar... It increases forearm strength which is where picking speed is focused from...
And also find a few random chromatic exercises, grab a metronome and go hell for leather.. Just keep playing and getting faster.. The metronome is so you gain speed with a clean technique and tempo

Picking well isn't about strength, it's about precision and control. If you get that burn in your bicep, it's not because you need more strength - it's because you are spending too much energy picking due to not having the technique up to snuff yet.

Honestly, you'll spend so much time focussing on left hand technique that your right hand should be fine picking all of this stuff up as a by-product.
