I utilize deadlifts and rows primarily. When I am on more of a "bodybuilding" phase I also use a vertical pulling motion. Usually Rack chins or pull downs. To be honest, I am lacking in Vertical pulling strength and need to put more emphasis on them.
I use deadlifts because they are one of the best overall strength builders.
And Rows, primarily Barbell variation, becuase they are great for building a massive upper back.

On another note, I did deads last night. Afterwards I thought to myself, anyone who says deads aren't an upper back exercise, simply is ignorant.
(just a note, I realize they work the entire posterior chain)
