Cramp or Spasm (non native speaker)

As far as I know cramp is when your muscle contracts on it’s own. It happens to me sometimes right after doing a set of abs and sometimes after working my biceps.
Today I came across the word ‘spasm’ which seem to have the same meaning when I googled. I want to know the difference between ‘cramp’ and ‘spasm.’

And please let me know about other terms that I might need to express myself properly.
