Default Hand exercises

I've laid off for a couple of years and now could use some hand/finger exercises to get my hands limber again before practicing. Any suggestions?

I made a video not too long ago talking about some techniques that have really helped me stretch and warm up my hands: https://youtu.be/dc_JOtOxWAs

Hope you find it helpful. Cheers!

Jack Lee showed a bunch of us those finger stretches a number of years ago. They certainly help keep fingers a bit more supple.
