Default Post Exercise Muscle Cramps

Are there particular muscles on your body which are more susceptible to post exercise muscle cramps?

The only muscle that I get cramps with any frequency post exercise are my pecs. Pretty much after any hypertrophy workout I am guaranteed them. It is horrible - I will cramp just crossing my arms driving my car!!!

calves, but I never train them, they are just prone to cramping.

Calves as well but I have other issues with them. They seem to seize up and are the cause of my long bout of shin splints. Tris also seem to cramp up a little bit after a hard arm day

My arms lock up in the shower when I try to wash my hair haha, my triceps twitch, and my quads lockup sometimes. I can get my calves to lockup if I static flex them about a day after training.
