For the first, we sometimes hear "90-pound weakling". For the second, some would call him a "muscle head".
Interested in Language
Is there a noun that names a guy who is skinny (scrawny) can't lift heavy weights, looks like he's never worked out and can be laughed at by some big gym frequenters?
Also is there a name for the opposite? Like a huge hulk-like (maybe on roids) man who is considered to be stereotypicly dum, clumsy and too muscular. I once heard something like "beefcake". Is it used?
If people laughed at me at the gym I would stop going there.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Ok, thank you. But what about "beefcacke" is it still used?
Not a teacher.
meathead for the later

The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter - 'tis the difference between the lightning-bug and the lightning.
