The meaning of "Iron" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does iron man mean?
A: a person of great physical strength and the ability to continue doing something difficult for a long time
Q: What does “I never thought you had so much iron on you” mean?
A: do you mean "iron in you"? I haven't really heard "iron on you"? The sentence would mean you didn't think the person was as strong/tough/determined as they turned out to be.

Q: What does iron graveyard mean?
A: @misokatsu: It seems to be a term specifically used by the trainer in the video (but perhaps also the body building community in general), as he also uses the term on Facebook and on his own website.

I assume it means the graveyard where bad (weight lifting) exercises are buried.

As far as I know, this is not a normal/common term.
Q: What does an iron bob mean?
A: It means he would not have bet on Gared winning.

This is not a common phrase at all. I didn't know what it meant when I read the book either. I looked it up, and apparently "Bob" is old British slang for a shilling.

Basically, he would not have put money on the outcome being favorable for Gared.
