During the off-season, NFL player Cam Newton looks to challenge himself in different ways that don’t include the football field. During a visit to The Late Late Show With James Corden, the 29-year-old revealed that since the beginning of 2019, he has been dedicated to  practicing self-control in different areas of his life. After not betting on anything in January, veganism (not eating any animal products) in February, he said in March he is abstaining from having climaxes, aka no sex.

“It’s challenging,” he told Corden about trying celibacy. “For me, doing certain things that challenge me in the off-season that I can’t necessarily do, so now when the season comes along it makes my mind stronger; I feel like if I go back and I say “I did those things,” I’m mentally stronger.”

From the looks of his Instagram, the veganism has lasted pass February and he is seeing positive results from the diet change.

Since Newton is a father-of-three and has been in a long-term relationship with Kia Proctor, the celibacy may not trickle over into April.
