1. Honestly, if you're doing enough heavy compounds and dips, you won't need to target the triceps specifically. I am too fat to do dips just yet, which is why I'm still using triceps pushdown and french presses... plus I don't have a dip station.
2. Dips - the heavier the better. If you can handle weighted dips, go for it!
3. I've been advised to only use any kind of grip assistance once you're grip has failed. Remember: you can't use straps in the competition. Developing grip strength is very important, so static holds (as recommended to me by BTB) are a good idea.
