1 arm DB snatches, powercleans, high pulls, OH jerks are some good ones. Also look into doing plyometric stuff as well. Something that I think works well is also supersetting an explosive movement with a compound exercise. For example, doing a set of 8 of front squats and then right after finishing the set go and do 10 or 15 plyo box jumps or something. You can also do it with bench + clap push ups.

Also look into Dynamic Effort work, which is taking about 60% of your 1-rep max for a lift, and doing 6-8 sets of 2-3 reps focusing on explosiveness and speed.
