practice scales daily using down picking, up picking and alt picking.

Practice slow with a metronome.

Also, practice fast downstrokes. Accuracy is key, but do them as fast as you can before they start getting sloppy. Always with a steady rhythm. Your hand naturally wants to upstroke after a downstroke, so once you get speed with the downstroke the upstrokes will be less difficult to add in.

just play scales and do exercises with good technique using small efficient motions and speed should naturally flow. There are lots of techniques you can use to play fast (sweeping, tapping, legato, economy picking) so practice exercises in those sort of things one I recommend is trills from your pinky to third finger because often pinky strength really limits players.
