In brief: Many of them

Many problems of the muscular system can be inherited.
There are hundreds if not thousands of genes that are important in the function of our muscles: skeletal muscle (=muscles we use every day to move), heart muscle and smooth muscle (e.g. Muscles in our intestinal system and blood vessels). All those muscle types can be affected by a genetic condition.
