I have to limit my back workouts. Dead lift makes me cringe just thinking about it Lol, but yes I agree strengthening your core is crucial for many back issues.

Ahhh, okay. I'm sorry to hear that happened. Yeah, definitely take it easy on the back workouts if it will exacerbate a past injury.

I agree with the beaches being better up north. Cleaner to. People tend to think Miami beach is awesome. Instead it's filled with a bunch of dirty foreigners that think its okay to dirty our city and run around topless with their boobs touching their knees. That is including the guys to.

As for summers up north in the Florida area it differs.
I mean, being close to the water you get a breeze for the most part.
It gets a hell of a lot colder up in the Orlando Tampa area than it does here.

You know living in tn for 6 years and going back and fourth from Florida to tn I noticed the summers there are far more hotter or so it feels than FL.
It's like Vegas. Dry dry heat and the occasional rain. The winter in Tn is what I hated when living there but I tend to miss it more now.
The coldest temp we have here is 50s


As for a road trip up north, YES.
Hey we can get Roshan to go lol.

All three nicely detailed CAMARO riding on the beach side.
Matt you get out of Michigan and come along.
Yeah, Miami Beach definitely isn't all it's cracked up to be. And yes, you're right, I've heard of summers being even hotter up North than down here, but my mom told me that super hot days up north during summer are like super cold days down here during winter - they don't happen that often.

And a road trip like that sounds like a blast. xD

I really need to strengthen it tho.
Yeah, you've told me... but I hear it so much from Brandi that her complaints almost outdo my mother's (who has extremely severe osteoarthritis).

The super hot days aren't often but with the low humidity once you reach TN, SC,NC the heat feels worse. I'm guessing do to the high humidity levels here and breeze we don't feel 90s as bad as we would up north in those states.


@matt, I respect you. You have back pains and detail cars. That's a crazy mix. I can't move the next day if I spend 10 hrs detailing.


Why the hell does brandie have such bad back pains ?

I love doing it. A lot of times my pain doesn't seem to be correlated to doing work or not. Just some days I wake up and I'm good, others I have to work to get out of bed.

Camaros are the WORST for people with bad backs. The hood is HUGE and leaning over that for hours trying to polish it is rough.

What he isn't telling you is where I was while I was polishing it. I was sitting on the windshield, lmao. I'm sitting there with my legs spread with the damn PC between them doing passes at the back side of the cowl. I still have swirl marks at the spot I was buffing because of how hard it was to reach. I wasn't able to get good pressure, not to mention my product combo wasn't real suited for the job (wetsand marks and I was running an orange LC pad w/ M105). The M105 was pretty much running the show there, but like they say, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and that pad just wasn't cutting it... literally.

These are tough cars to work on, I'm not gonna lie. They're so long and broad. A lot of painted surface to polish.

And Dani, I dunno WTF is wrong with her back. I think it's because of her crappy bed combined with how generally weak she is.

It was a funny ass night seeing you go at it trying to fix the scratches.

Tell her to start working out her back. There must be a workout you. Can do at home if going to a gym is to harsh for her.

Talking about detailing cars, there is this kid on a detailing forum that owns the WRX suburu hatchback. He has been detailing for a year or so and knows his stuff. He has been trying to start a business the past few months.
Last week he got his first phone call to do a paint correction.
He finished the hood and says he couldn't handle detailing others cars.
His first car to work on? A 2011 CAMARO. He said it was huge and he underestimated detailing until then lol

Yeah, people underestimate how much work it could be. Especially on certain cars. And odds are, that car was pretty neglected.

Most people think detailing a car is washing the outside and making sure to get the wheel wells and vacuuming the interior when it's actually a whole lot more than that.

Some say it only takes 45 minutes. The rest of us are just really really slow.

It took me 8 hours to do a freakin' decon and wax last Sunday, and that was just the paint - I already did the wheels throughout the week preceding.
