There's a couple of things to do for powerful slams:
* For the pure strength do plenty of heavy hip and back exercises
- Deadlifts
- Bent Over ROws
- Cleans (and Power Cleans)
- Squats

* Make a sandbag since the weight it uneven it is more like a person:

- Shoulder it
- Swing it
-Slam it
- Do cleans with it
- Throw it

* Practice with people. Shoot in on them and pick them up for the slam. Just don't slam them full power. Practice this over and over because it's just as much technique as it is muscle.

What like Matt Hughes or Rampage style? I would think lots of leg exercises.
Squats really, jump squats are for building explosiveness. power clean is another exercise you can do. Core exercises and a strong back would be good also. A good core exercises is the seated medicine ball twist.

not a problem. I missed core exercises anyways (although the lifts I lested will indirectly hit your core hard anyways)

Throw in some heavy core movements too: ab wheel rollouts, turkish getups, for some reason I'm drawing a blank this morning but your get the idea.

anybody got perfect instructions for a grappling dummy? i wonder if that would not only be good for subs, but might also be good to simulate a person.

Those are great for rotational strength and conditioning but I'm not sure how directly relevent they would be to slams. Either way though they are good exercises

I would also suggest a heavy band workout. Tie off the heavy band and start pulling over your shoulder in a very fast explosive movement. I first saw it on a Jeff Monson clip and I've been hooked on power bands ever since.

Power Clean:
Effectively the same but you don't bend at the knees when catching the bar at the top - http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.php?Name=Power+Clean

Turkish Getup:

That's mostly for upper body & overall body conditioning training. Slams and other power movements develop within the legs. It's all about the legs. :)

Just make sure that it's a rather thick pad so ya don't end up hurting each other.

ya, those mats they use for judo at alot of places should be think enough, definitely have to be thicker and softer padding than a wrestling mat
