I had to go back to an earlier commit of my code locally, so I used
git reset --hard <tag>
Assuming that you have not done a fetch since your last sync with the remote tracking branch, then you should be able to reset your branch to what the latest commit was in the remote at the time you last synched:
git reset --hard origin/yourBranch
If you want to sync your branch with what the latest remote is, you can just try pulling:
git pull origin yourBranch
But make sure you commit all your work first, and expect that there might be merge conflicts.
