You can work, develop, and emphasize all the different muscles to create different physical effects, and you can train muscles for endurance or for strength, but you can't direct the shape that the muscle will take when it grows. You can't choose 'long and lean' muscles over 'short and squat' ones. That part is determined by genetics.
