Our expert says:
They're getting a work out, yes, but perhaps relative to your ability and fitness, it's not as large as that for the arms. Remember they're quite different muscles, different functions and that can make them more difficult to "burn". But in terms of weight loss, it doesn't matter whether you use the muscle or not, you can't lose weight on specific muscles anyway. Rather focus on total energy use, and then make diet choices to help you create an energy deficit. The weight then comes off.
Overall it sounds liek you're getting good training in. Now it's just to make sure that diet is also good and then you should see progress.
