Default Never feel it in the "hammies"

Our spin instructor is always telling us which moves should hit our "hammies" as she loves to call them. I never feel the hamstrings, not even when I'm doing dead lifts. I get my rear end as far back on that bike as I can and I "hover", but I never feel it there. I feel the quads though. So I finally asked her about it today and she watched my form. She finally decided I must just have really strong hamstrings.

Do you suppose that could be from years of being obese? I carried 100 extra pounds around for 10 years.
