Default Forearm pain/cramping/spasms after training

In my last training cycle, I had an accessory day on Saturday. This day consisted of lots of pull ups/chin ups, DB rows, DB chest supported rows, DB hammer curls, and DB curls. A couple hours after finishing these sessions, I would start to get terrible forearm spasms and pain. If I tried to bend my arms at all, my forearms would spasm and often pull my arms into a fully flexed (like you're doing a curl) position. The pain was pretty bad, and this happened every time.

Last Saturday (ie, two days ago), I did this same training day, but without any curls. My forearms started doing the same thing, and the pain is actually still here today (although they aren't cramping). Normally, this would have been gone on Sunday mornings.

Anyone have any ideas on what's weak in my body and causing this? My personal opinion is that my biceps are grossly weak and my forearms are taking over.
