I was wondering if anyone could recommend any effective workouts that could help me obtain more explosiveness when turning my waists and also some excersises to simply strengthen them. Things like throwing a medicine ball to a partner or shotputting are ideal workouts that I want to do, but I was also looking for some more alternatives. I currently use cable rope machines at the gym, but was also thinking of throwing sand bags (instead of medicine ball-might be way too heavy though) or using resistance bands. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Yea, I tried looking at the body weight exercise section, but it didn't really provide me with any type of explosive training.

I tried looking up the hyper rotations and power iron coil but couldn't seem to find any site that explained these exercsies. Do you think you could give me a description or some kind of link? Thanks I really appreciate it.

Hyper rotations is when you do the hyper extensions and rotate at the same time or right after you came up. YOu can hold your hands together with arms straight or you can hold your arms out, perpendicular to your body.

Power Iron coil is when you hand off the roap with your arms and legs straight and you turn your body. Your feet are on the floor. Go to Elasticsteel news letters Power Iron coil is in one of them, if you need to see it.

Try the wood chop, one-arm cable push, or one-arm cable pull described here and the full contact twist described here.
Read this and this.

Throwing a sandbag is a good idea, as long as you engage the waist explosively.
