I have 2 pieces of advice.

First, when you pull on back exercises, start by moving the shoulder back, and then complete the lift by pulling the elbow back and squeezing the lats together. This isn't done in a slow manner, but rather naturally, with brute strength. (Think shoulders back, elbows back, squeeze.)

Second, use heavy weight. I am not a fan of mind muscle and that sort of thing. Row/pull as much as you can. Don't worry about slowing things down to feel. Practice the above while moving heavy iron. I am now up to 215 on dumbbell rows and 315 on barbell rows and can still pull using the above style.
