Yeah, as long as you're bearing in mind that the hands have multiple paths/functions they recover pretty much like anything else. Most people accept that the hands typically recover faster than say quads etc, in my opinion this is because; they're smaller, they have a multitude of functions (you can train wrist strength to hell and still be relatively good to do pinch work etc), hand strength is something most adults have a decently adapted (via DIY or whatever) workload capacity.

This is why I said that something like a Farmers Walk generally covers most things, but if you want to get really serious about it then as long as you split up the various facets of grip training and spread them apart, recovery should be fine.
