Best way to eliminate excess water from a shaving brush

After soaking or wetting the brush prior to a shave is it better to squeeze the hairs to eliminate the excess water, or shake the brush?
Also after the shave when I rinse the brush, is it better to squeeze the hairs to eliminate the excess water, or shake the brush?
I'm asking because I'm worried if I shake the brush too hard I'll rip the hairs out.

I've given mine some propper flicks of the wrist without problems, it's up to you though, you could just gently squeeze it with your hand! :) P.

After shave I vigorously flick brush over my knuckles to get rid of excess water, hoping the now rather dry tips will be good at wicking water from base of knot for a faster overall drying time.
