    This is merely opinion (maybe not), but what which muscle would you say that genetics has the most influence on growth/shape.

    i would say a toss up between biceps/triceps and chest.

    Whatever muscle group you've not developed well, since genetics are the in-season ace card ultimate bullshit excuse.

    Calves have very little to do with genetics (it seems to me anyways).

    If you're fat or work them out HEAVY and regularly they will develop. Being fat is a product of environment, not genetics. People just don't use them.
