I need some more grip strength for my deadlifts AND I want to build some bigger forearms. Therefore I planned on ding two exercises in the future: The Wrist roller (this is probably more for the size-factor) and the Woody Hand Gripper (for adding strength).
Could I do like a 5x5 routine for the Woody Gripper or is the training routine I should be doing for forearm a little bit different, if I want to gain strength?
looking forward to your advice and experiences with the matter

What training routine for hand gripper?

Here's a suggestion:
I train my grip 3-4x/week while at work. Couple of high rep sets some days, low rep sets on the others.Here Lies the Rant

Thanks Lencho, going to look into that!
@Steven: The problem is, that my grip strength is limiting my deadlift :/ of course it will get better, but if I could improve further on its own I could improve my deadlift quicker.
What would really interest me is the combination of 5x5 and hand gripper?! Maybe add some negative and time holds?

I thought of the following routine (just for the gripper):
- 5x5 (not sure if ramped or setacross)
- 5 x Over-Crunches (10-30s) with a lighter weight
- 3 x Negatives (5-10s) with a really heavy weight
- 5x5 (or 3x5) doing some thumbs-crunches (just pushing with the thumb an index finger)
Sounds good for building some Strength I could use for my 5x5 Deadlifts?

I've used a lot of stuff in here with great success: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...r_the_deadlift
Best thing for deadlift grip strength is heavy deadlifts with static holds at the top.My Journal (RIP 05/11 - 09/13):
