What does Hench mean?

Strong and built

When you hear the term ‘Hench’, it’s generally referring to someone who is extremely muscular. It’s a slang way of talking about a person with a big, built physique – think bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts.

But ‘Hench’ isn’t limited to just describing people. It can also be used to talk about anything that’s big or gigantic. So, if you come across a particularly huge tree or a massive burger, you could also use ‘Hench’ to describe them.

Interestingly, ‘Hench’ can also be used as a verb. In this context, it describes the action of someone being forcefully moved or shoved aside, often by a person with muscular strength. So, if someone is ‘Henching’ you, they’re basically using their muscle power to move you out of the way.

Example for using ‘Hench’ in a conversation

Hey, have you seen the new guy at the gym?

Yeah, he’s so hench! I can’t believe how muscular he is.

Totally! He’s like a walking mountain.

I know, right? I feel small next to him.
