Just apply ice, it will go down.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The picture is not at all clear.
What body part are you having the swelling ?
Can you upload a clearer pic ?
Just apply ice to it, due to over exertion while working out, this might have happened.
Dont worry.

Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
You might have sprained or burst a vein while lifting a weight.
Wrap a wet towel or bandage tight around it for an hour.
Then take it off and apply some ice.
If the swelling still increases, you may need to go the ER.
But I do not think that will happen.
Take care.
