Keri Russell reveals her taut abs on the cover of an upcoming issue of Women’s Health in a printed bikini top and a pair of cutoff shorts.

“BEST. ABS. EVER,” reads the cover with the scantily clad 37-year-old mother-of-two. How did she get her fit figure back after having her kids? "[I have] this really nerdy workout I do in my walk-through closet in our brownstone, " she told Women's Health. "I do a workout video and use my own music — whatever is inspiring to me at that time, like Alabama Shakes, the Cure, or Mumford and Sons."

Currently, Russell stars in FX’s new hit drama series The Americans, alongside former Brothers and Sisters star Matthew Ryhs. In the series, which takes place in the 80s, Russell and Rhys play a husband and wife team of under cover KGB agents. Throughout the series, Russell engages in some demanding fight scenes that certainly benefit from her apparent core strength.

Russell lives in Brooklyn with her husband, carpenter Shane Deary, and their two children, River, 5, and daughter Willa. She credits her hometown with helping her keep the weight off. "My number one healthy tip? Everyone should dance more. Everyone should walk more," Russell said to the magazine, adding, "I mean that's one of the great things about living in Brooklyn and in New York. You get to eat a big rich fatty meal but then you can walk home."

Watch Russell on The Americans on FX Wednesdays at 10/9c.
