I am slowly moving into Crossfit as my workout plan. I scale quite a bit and supplement with medium distance runs, as I will hopefully be attending USMC PLC Juniors Course this summer. I am actually using the Austere Group Program (Crossfit)that was designed for Army soldiers. It was emailed to me by a recent OCS grad who used Crossfit prior to his time at Quantico. It seems to be working well.

My questions is this; after almost every pullup-heavy workout or run, I experience severe back spasms in one or both of my lats. I initially thought it was a hydration issue, but I have increased to over a gallon of water a day and it still happens frequently. Today it occured right before I was getting ready to deadlift. The spasms are extremely painful and leave me unable to converse or do anything while they are occuring.

Is this common,and if so, does it sound like a nutrition issue?

Are they specifically in your lats or in other muscles nearby?

I get spasms in some mystery muscles near my lats, more along my ribs, so I'll be interested to see what the others write.

They are specifically in my lats. I forgot to mention that they will occur at any time as well,i.e, I when I reach into to the back seat to give my daughter her pacifier when she's screaming or twisting my torso to reach for something behind me.
