Zooey Deschanel

With summer right around the corner, there's little time for a full-body routine to get beach-ready. Zero in on that six pack (or your soon-to-be six pack) to get the most bang for your bikini. Actress Zooey Deschanel turns to The Bar Method for her chiseled middle. The trick? The Kickstand Curl exercise that, if done three to five times a week, can flatten abs and firm your seat quickly. According to Us Weekly, the crunch-like move uses small movements to target the abs without any of the neck strain. Deschanel's go-to exercise proves that small, targeted moves can yield big results -- and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home! Watch the step-by-step instructions on and give it a try!
