No shame in using straps for rows if you need to. That way you can focus on your back. You can always work on your grip separately later.

Is that you in your picture?

I wish; it’s a stock USA wrestling photo. As for straps, I might get them next spring. They’ve really helped my friend’s deadlift and rows, but he also said his grip has tanked since. I have no idea if he does any extra grip work or not, though.
