You don't want to be 'that guy' (and every gym has one) who's got an impressive upper body but legs like a 5 year old girl.

 

There's no getting away from the fact that squats are tough - if you've not squatted before then your body will be in a state of shock for a few weeks whilst it gets used to the added strain. Make sure your technique is good and keep at it.

The fatigue your experiencing from those movements is systemic, but that's a good thing, muscle growth for the most part happens systemically, not just from localized movements. Heavy leg and back training has improved my power and strength throughout my entire body. As the late great Paul Anderson said "the legs and back of the seed of all strength".
