I say this every time before i paint correct a family members car. 3-4 hours later my back is killing me and I just want to lay down and die. You really need to be in great shape for all the bending and squatting that needs to be done.

People certainly underestimate how much time and energy goes into a full detail.

In you're opinion, what is the best method to detail a car that lives outside? I feel like regards of what I do my car is a magnet for pollen and sap. I don't even park under trees. Is there special wax / ceramic coats that make pollen not stick to cars?

Pollen and sap can etch into the paint if not dealt with in a timely manner. Wax or a coating act as a sacrificial layer. Ceramic coatings will last longer, and make cleaning sap or pollen and other contaminates easier, but will still degrade over time. A good sealant will do the same, to a lesser degree, over time.
Neither will be good if you can't at least wash your car weekly, as it's the build up and caked on stuff that becomes hard to remove. My car is coated and I often alternate a full hand wash to a foam pressure wash as I don't always have time to hand wash. 95% of stuff comes off with the foam dwelling and pressure rinse.
