An explosion that pushes outwards also pushes inwards. And for matter at the very center, how is it going to explode and push its way through the star - there is a star in the way!? Also, the star is collapsing rapidly, so before it explodes it first has to build up enough pressure to halt the collapse. So the reaction gets more and more energetic, the pressure gets higher and higher, and...
And WHAT ???

Your first line here says something about the center pushing outwards, now this is the center and there is no inward, I am lost. If the star collapses in the mean time thats just going to increase the pressure further ?
