For women, losing the fat around your midsection can be both the battle and the war.

Achieving a flat belly can be challenging. Between balancing work, a healthy diet, and exercise, it can be hard to get rid of stubborn belly fat. However, it's not impossible; and luckily for you, with the exercises below, we're settling your battle in searching for the top ab routines, to ensure you win the war for your best summer body.

Click through the slideshow below to check out the top ten exercises to get a flatter stomach, just in time to show it off on the beach.

*For each workout, choose a combination of at least eight different ab exercises targeting various muscle groups. Complete 8-12 repetitions, and 2-3 sets.

7. Side Plank

The side plank is an often-overlooked exercise for building strong abs. What a lot of people don't realize is that there are few moves as good for your core as the side plank. As a workout that targets your core and your upper back, all you need is your bodyweight to get your ideal summer abs.

Here's how it's done:

Lie on your right side with your knees straight. Prop your body up on your left elbow and forearm. Raise your right hand until it's perpendicular with your torso, making your body a T. Then, brace your core by contracting your abs forcefully as if you were about to be punched in the guy. Raise your hips until your body forms a straight line from your ankles to your shoulder. Breathe deeply, then hold the position for your specified amount of time. (Start with 30 seconds and work your way up from there. If 30 seconds is too easy, move to 45.) To complete the exercise, switch from your right side to your left.
