    Practice valves

    Because the handgrips tend to be sold with different resistance values, it might become an expensive hobby buying them at £12 a pop. The Varigrip is adjustable, so it serves as a good starting point, although I would rate the resistance as light to medium. The eBay link above is probably the...
