    For those that don't know Dr Michael Yessis he is considered a legendary sport scientist responsible for amongst other things bringing plyometrics to the United States from the Soviet Union where they were first used.

    During his day he served as performance consultant to Evander Hoyfield amongst other athletes.

    One of the things Yessis brought to the united states is the use of specialised strength exercises specific to sport skills.

    You can see Evander Holyfield doing a specialised strength exercise at 3:15 of this video.
