Delicious Christmas confections clearly can’t drag Liam Payne down. On Tuesday, the 22-year-old One Direction star took to Instagram to prove that indulgent holiday treats are no match for his abs—and maybe make those who prefer lounging around in pajamas over the winter break a bit jealous.

In the shirtless shot, the English crooner showcases his perfectly toned physique along with a simple, funny caption: “Christmas weight dusted!!”

Of course this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Payne strip down to his skivvies for a 'gram (below); however we’re thoroughly impressed by his commitment to all things fitness.

So why must the beloved star be hitting the gym? We’re sure he wants to look great by a pool, but 1D is also set to headline Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest in just a few days, so you bet he needs an extra dose of endurance for the countdown.

One Directioners, you're welcome.
