Abstract: Core power training is a power capacity that bases its main purposes on stabilizing the core part of the human body, controlling the movement of the center of gravity, and delivering the power of upper and lower limbs, a “source of power explosion” for the movement of the human body. The essence of core power training is the sta-bility of the core of the human body. Core power training was introduced into the practice of competitive sports in China until the early 21st century, which can be divided into two periods: in the early period, most people did not actually understand the essence of core power training, so the enhancement of physical stamina and sports perform-ances was not significant; since 2006, core power training had been booming in China; although it was not perfect enough in terms of method, means and result evaluation, it was successful generally. Today, national and provincial sports teams have all adopted core power training.
