What Does Swole Mean?

Want a bodybuilder to be your BFF? Tell them they're looking swole, that should do it

If you haven’t come across this term before, lucky you. You obviously don’t follow enough bodybuilders on Instagram.

Swole literally means swollen, and refers to the temporary pumping of muscles when they’re full of blood and lactic acid after a workout. Usually used to refer to someone buff, ie ‘dude you are looking swole!’
