curious to see what others say. but to me the ME is more weight ( water weight ~8.34 lb/gal plus 10% body weight added on) all out, which should put your heart rate well above your AeT and really condition your muscles for strength and endurance vs the BW +10% on hilly terrain is conditioning your muscles and cardio by keeping your HR under your AeT but the biggest difference is on hilly terrain your working uphill and downhill for muscles vs ME is going UP which is I would think the most taxing on the muscles.
I’m doing the 8 week mountaineering training plan and I’m wondering what is the difference between the “Muscular Endurance Uphill Water Carry” w/10% BW and the “WEIGHTED 10% BW hike in hilly terrain”?
From the description the weighted hike says keep HR under AeT and the ME uphill carry says ‘should be done as hard as you can… but if you are doing this right your HR wont be the limiter’
So is it just the effort?
