Pull, Ye Mighty Steeds!
The simple act of pulling hard is very primal. Weather pulling something closer to you or pulling yourself closer to something, there is fantastic capacity to be earned here.
All of the movements that compose the core of a solid training program should be this natural. Think of the movements we use everyday in our training and otherwise. Sure, some of the equipment we use is fashioned to get the job done efficiently and we refine the technique to optimize biomechanics, but really all we are doing is: Pushing, pulling, putting things overhead, picking shit up off the ground, running, jumping, throwing etc. None of these are the invention of a single mind. They are part of our universal physical language.
The 6am gang is fairly well-versed in the primal-pull. Into oblivion!
