Wow--how tall are you to be carrying 315 lbs (let alone 350)?

I've been trying to avoid the whole bulking up/trimming down sequence; now that I'm over 40, the trimming down is a lot tougher (my metabolism, which was never fast, has gotten a bit slower still). But then I haven't seen any quantum leaps in strength in a great while, either.

Do you do powerlifting movements--deadlifts, clean and jerk, etc--or do you stick to bodybuilding exercises to pack on the mass? What's your favorite for packing it on?

(Mine is stiff-leg deadlifts, but since July--when I pushed it too far and injured my lower back, despite near perfect form--I haven't been able to tackle them as aggressively as I like)

I am 6'1" with 18-20% bodyfat. 

I do powerlifting movements all the time.  These are great for packing on mass!!  I tend to start out with the powerlifting and then move into the related body parts. For example on deadlifts I will follow it up with barbell rows, dumbbell rows, low cable-pulley rows, straight-leg deadlifts, wide-grip pulldowns, close-grip pulldowns, and pull-ups(hate these grrr). 

Sorry to hear about your back injury.  That is a tough one to come back from!  Have you tried body-weight goodmornings or done romanian deadlifts to help strengthen it a bit more?
