You may try treating one of your row sessions as a dynamic effort session. Maybe something like 3x8 at 65% with 1 minute rest intervals or something along those lines.
I've never done it to be honest, but I just want to through the idea out there.

Thanks guys. It's just an idea at this stage. Doing it in the near future would certainly mess up my strength gains. One step at a time.
Saturday 24 March
Clean & Press
65x3 - At this stage, it was clear my shoulder is not fully healed from last week. There is a pain on the front of the right shoulder which makes pressing from the chest painful. If it persist, dumbbell presses to the ears will be used as they were today (kinda).
80: 5 x singles - Lots of these were crap. Just didn't have it today. Perhaps not eating many carbs in the last 72 hours caught up with me. Who knows?
Push presses - Decided on some light sets.
60x 5 x 3
62.5kg: 8 x 3 - May stick at this weight. Bar speed was so-so.
Close Grip Bench
75 x 5
75 x 5
75 x 4 - Not entirely sure how 'close', close grip is supposed to be. My hands are about 7-8 inches apart. Too wide?
Standing dumbbell presses:
15 x 10 x 4 sets
15 x 9
Christ I was humbled by 15kg Dumbbells, could barely reach lockout at the end. About 60 seconds between sets.
Pin 20 (Max) 3 x 8
Edit: Also did Pavel's ladder for dead hang chins. Laughably bad but it was at the end of the session
