Arm Position/Setup

For a trigger style grip and a forearm rotation/wrist blend picking motion is there a certain setup for the arm and wrist that is ideal for this? I have been working on having my hand rest pretty flat against the strings and sort of attempt deviation, but allow the forearm to move. For the arm position, I try to basically follow what is in the Bulletproof Wrist Picking video. I still am having trouble getting my arm to stay completely relaxed all the time, though. Also still having trouble getting my wrist to track smoothly which is why I am trying to do more deviation and less forearm. Just wondering what people’s thoughts are and what sort of arm positions people use.
