Put it away, Arg! TOWIE's James Argent flaunts his moobs in the mud as he attempts to fight the flab at boot camp
16:07 GMT, 12 November 2012
He's constantly bemoaning his bulging wasitline, and has been on more yo-yo diets than most people have had hot meals.
But it would seem James 'Arg' Argent is more determined than ever to fight the flab if his appearance at a fitness boot camp this weekend was anything to go by.
The TOWIE star seemed to be giving his all as he was put through his paces during a gruelling workout with his personal trainer.
Fighting the flab: James 'Arg' Argent continued with his mission to battle the bulge as he hit a boot camp on Sunday
Stripping off to reveal his somewhat sizeable 'moobs' and the chunky beer belly that has no doubt come about as a result of too many nights boozing down at Sugar Hut, the 24-year-old star didn't seem to care who saw as he thrashed about in the mud.
And despite Arg looking a long way away from the ripped body he desires, the determination on his face was undeniable as he got to work at the No1 Boot Camp in Norfolk on Sunday.
The tubby reality star seemed to be undergoing a series of strenous exercises, including press-ups and squats, as he rolled around in the mud.

And after finishing off with some weights, the wannabe singer appeared to collapse on the ground, before jumping up again with a look of pure jubilation on his face.
Late last week, Arg took to Twitter to tell his fans of his plans to slim down at boot camp.
He said: 'On a very long road trip far far away!!! Goodbye Essex for a while, Hopefully il come back much slimmer!!! #BootCamp #SlimJim.'
The star was immediately inundated with messages of support from his castmates, wishing him luck with his latest weight-loss mission.

Tom Pearce added: 'good luck mate hopefully wont recognise ya when u get back.'
But Mario Falcone couldn't seem to resist giving his TOWIE co-star a ribbing about his dietary preferences.
He joked: 'no more donner kebabs for lunch. or breakfast!'

And in addition to the gruelling exercise the star has been forced to undergo, it would seem he is also trying to stick to a healthy diet.
Arg said: 'Good Morning Everyone, 2 mile run done and Porridge for breakfast! So tired already but here goes… #BootCamp.
'Im lonely, tired, Aching, In pain from head to toe n hungry but it will all be worth it! #BootCamp Cheer me up please guys, Need motivation!'
In 2011, Arg lost one and a half stone in just eight weeks, declaring that not only did he feel 'amazing', but it had also improved his sex life with then-girlfriend Lydia Bright.

Is it working The TOWIE star seemed to be checking out whether the gruelling diet and exercise regime had had an effect on him
He told Fabulous magazine: 'I used to turn the lights off when we were in bed. I would hide my body away because I hated my belly, moobs and love handles, but now I'm like, “Wahey! Look at me!”
'I've got more energy. Lydia's definitely benefiting from my diet. In fact, she's going around with a smirk on her face.'
Arg is currently single following his split from TOWIE co-star Gemma Collins earlier this year.
