I'm talking about riffs like the main riff in Master of Puppets where you have to play fast by using only downstrokes. How should I move my hand? Only the wrist or the whole arm by using my elbow? Because I can't play it really long or my hand starts to hurt.

And I'm confused because some people say that you shouldn't move your wrist, and on the other hand I've heard that using your wrist is a good thing.
