    Muscle strength lifting 200 lbs over your head one time.
    Muscle endurance, not being able to lift 200 lbs over your head, but you can lift 100lbs over your head 30 times.

    The guy who lifts 200 lbs over his head cannot lift 100lbs over his head 30 times because he does not have good muscle endurance.

    The guy who lifts 100 lbs over his head 30 times cannot lift 200lbs over his head because he does not have enough muscle strength

    Muscle Endurance – How many or how long you can run or lift. This can be improved if you always do as many as you can.
    Muscle Strength – How much you can lift. You just lift as much weight as you can very few times.

    Endurance: How often you can lift/how many reps you can do.
    Strength: How heavy you can lift, doesn’t really matter how long you can do it for.

    You build both by lifting weights and drink milk after too. Work until you can’t possibly lift another, then do it again.

    There is a link,imagine you were only strong enough to lift a weight that weighed 30 pounds once,imagine how many times you could lift a 25 pound weight,now imagine somebody who could lift 60 pounds once,how many times could they lift 25 pounds?do they have better endurance or better strength?they have both.

    The names explain themselves.

    Muscle strength, or strength, means that you can generate a great force/strength/power for a short moment, or for one lift. Sprinters, Olympic Weightlifters, Jumpers. They all require strength, as they aren’t required to last very long, but to perform quickly and efficiently.

    Muscle endurance. Being able to perform an strenuous activity for a longer duration of time.
    To be able to generate and continue to hold a force for a certain duration of time.
    Long distance runners, Rowers, Military, Soccer players. These all are required to generate power through a certain amount of time, and “endure” it.

    It is true that a strong person won’t have enough endurance to last as long, but an endurance athlete is nowhere near the strength of a strength/power athlete.
    When it comes to lifts, though, the stronger person will probably have more reps than the more endurant person, but he wouldn’t last in his endurance sport.

    MMA and BJJ are two such sports. MMA require more of an endurance, while BJJ require strength to grapple your opponent and hold on to him and defend against his strength.
