I know this question has been answered already in the Nihongo Master Chatroom, but just to give everyone an idea, I'm answering it again.

"Yoisho" is like saying "Oof" or "Urrgh" in English. Or when you are tired and something is extra difficult. It might also mean "Heave!" like if you are lifting something with some other people and you say, "1, 2, 3, Heave!". Also, because Japanese people love rhyming and repetitive things, they might also say "yoisho, dokkoisho!"

よいしょ!頑張りましょう!
