Swole is a way to describe a person's physique as "incredibly muscular." The term comes from the person's "swollen" appearance (due to the size of their muscles).
Origin of swole
The slang term "swole" gained popularity in the 1990s, partially due to its usage in the 1991 song The Tower by rapper Ice-T. But it wasn't until the 2010s that the popularity of the term skyrocketed in bodybuilding social media culture. People may spell the term as swoll, too.
Other uses of swole
While people typically use swole to describe a person's ripped bod, they may also use it to describe anything swollen or enlarged. For example, a person who is cocky may be described as having a "swole head."
