Personal trainer and entrepreneur Jillian Michaels is best known as an original trainer on the NBC reality TV show called The Biggest Loser. Michaels was also featured in The Biggest Loser spin-off series called Losing It with Jillian.

The 42-year-old shared an omelet recipe recently that featured eggs, spinach, green onion, and hot sauce. She also posted a workout video of a diamond belly button pushup.
How is the ‘Jillian Michaels workout’ done? In plank position your hands are placed in a diamond shape with index fingers and thumbs touching right beneath your belly button.
Next, you lower down until the elbows are bent 90 degrees, and then push back up to your starting position. To modify, you perform this exercise on your knees.
