Forearms/Grip

I want to improve my grip. I was going to add in some grip training, i currently do a 5 day split
Shoulders
Back
Chest
Legs and Core
Arms
Would i just add it in to arm day or would it be better slotting it in somewhere else?

    I'd also like to hear some opinions on this.
    My forearms seem to have grown since I started doing pullups.
    I've read articles that say grip/forearms respond best to static holds ie farmers walks and the like.
    I've read you can train grip/forearms every day since they're quick to recover.
    I'd like to hear a more experienced view of this.
    Hammer curls and pullups have worked best for me.
    I'm considering using two tea towels for pullups and maybe getting some cannonball grips (roguefitness). Has anyone any experience with these grips?

    Fit it into your program: Static deadlifts on back/legs day.
    Dead hangs at the end of pull-ups set. 
    Dumbell wrist curls at end of arms workout etc. 
    For specific grip work look at some of Mobsters posts and comments, he also has a book on improving grip strength.

    These work well I would recommend using small bath towels rather than tea towels though as they can tear easily.

    Chin ups and hammer curls will definitely make them grow.
