Meat-Head

compounding; noun
A person who is extremely passionate about body-building and performing in sports. Particularly pertains to an open obsession with weight lifting.
 
The term compunds the two words "meat" and "head". The term meat in this case is used as metonymy for muscle of a human, because the meat from an animal is muscle. The term was coined because it was humorously thought that a person who worked out that hard must even be building muscle in their head. Th term sometimes may be widened to describe to the intelligence of a person, as in they have so much muscle that there must be no room for the brain.
Etymology : meat is from the term meaning "flesh of an animal used for food" and head refers to the human head.
