Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton appears to enjoy a challenge.
The former NFL MVP is battling through an offseason that has included shoulder surgery, veganism and apparently no sex for the month of March.
On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Newton said that March was "no climax" month.
Explaining himself to a stunned crowd, Newton said the decision aims to force him to become stronger mentally.
"It makes my mind stronger," he said. "So when the season comes around, I say if I did those things, I’m mentally stronger."
