The reason? To be a better quarterback.

“I’m going through a transition right now. I wanted it to be challenging because I’m coming off of shoulder surgery. That’s including no WiFi, no thigh thigh … it’s hard! It makes my mind stronger,” Newton said. “So when the season comes around, I say if I did those things, I’m mentally stronger.”

Newton has set up these different challenges throughout the year to keep his mind fresh. Last month, he went vegan and back in January, he kept himself away from gambling. Now, celibacy is a new mental challenge for Newton as he and his girlfriend have three lovely children together. But if this helps Cam on the field and in the general walk of life then we’re here for it!

But here’s a question — could you be celibate for a month in order to strengthen your mind?
