While appearing on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Thursday, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton revealed he gives himself a new challenge to take on each month.

He told Corden that for March, he is taking a vow of chastity.

“In March – I hope this is an adult crowd, it looks like it is – no climax,” Newton said.

Newton said he gave up betting in January, he gave up betting, went vegan in February, and in March, he would take a vow of chastity.

“No wi-fi, no thigh-thigh,” Newton joked of the March challenge.

“It’s challenging,” Newton said. “So, for me, doing certain things that challenge me in the offseason, that I can’t necessarily do, so now, when the season comes around, it makes my mind stronger. I feel like, if I go back and say I did those things, I’m mentally stronger.”

According to reports, Newton has a long-time girlfriend with whom he has three children.
