When picking at 170+ speed is it common to have to use the arm more then the wrist to help increase the speed of the picking?

If its not are there any practices I can do to help increase my wrist speed?

I'm also noticing that when i play at higher speeds and focus really hard at keeping it coming from my wrist that the top portion of my forearm starts to get sore. Is this from picking incorrectly.

I think he meant if you focus on moving your thumb and not your wrist or arm. When you move your thumb your wrist will move as well according to it.

Try to pick from the wrist, you'll have much more control than picking from the arm.
