With this in mind you could use the body building method of bulking up then cutting back(the theory being,when you cut back the excess fat you will be left with the majority of the muscle gains).
I have no idea how this will affect you as a power lifter though.Most body builders experience a drop in training poundages when dieting(this could be due to very extreme diet practices though).
