what does "he might as well have beaten on his chest with his fists." mean? 'Show time!' said the barrister. And as he jumped up he wrapped his gown across his chest and pushed out his ribs. A primal gesture, he might as well have beaten on his chest with his fists.

"He might as well have beaten on his chest with his fists" - just like an ape making a show of strength. Note the word "primal".

It reminds me of Tarzan movies, when Tarzan would give a tremendous yell and beat his chest with his fists after vanquishing some foe.
