there are a lot of ways you can try to build up speed, but i would advise to not forget about the actual sound that you produce, a lot of shredders are quite laking tone wise. Practice a lot, record yourself, practicing, also the metronome is your friend, also i advise trying to practice with accoustic guitar, if it's ellectric - dont use too much effects when you're practicing technique (the effects should augment your sound, not obscure it, unless you're doing it on purpouse)

Hi, my first real post. I am not sure what instrument you play. I have experienced this like you with playing the guitar. I would practice chords and then scales. Do them every day even if it is for 10-15 minutes. As long as you have 2 or 3 days of heavy practice where muscle memory is made and that takes at least an hour minimum. The days of just 10 mins will still help reinforce the muscle memory being made.

Break up any lack of concentration buy alternating between playing chords and scales.

You need to start increasing the tempo only after you can play melodies without a glance and feel confident. Only after that, you can add new rhythms

Best speed exercise is to play slow.

And then slowly up the tempo.
A metronome helps.
