there have been a number of articles written for this. please do a search.

in short,

ME = Maximum Effort. Your goal on this day is to choose one lift (it has to be a big compound movement) and hit a 1, 2 or 3RM for that day. This 1,2 or 3 RM that you hit may or may not be a PR but it must be your max for that day.

DE = Dynamic Effort. Your goal here is to do 8-10 sets of 1-3 reps for a big compound movement with 40-70% of your max and focus on great form and deadlift speed. So in short: you do each rep as fast as you can while maintaining picture perfect form.
