How much water you should drink every day?
"Drinking At Least 3 - 5 liters"???It is best information for how much water we should have to drink atleast 3-5 ltr water
It depends upon what you are doing and how you want to perform... 3 liters would be woefully short (and dangerous) on a long high altitude climb, as it would also be on a six hour bike race..."Drinking At Least 3 - 5 liters"???

With that said, sodium intake is rarely an issue for the majority of healthy individuals; it only a health factor for individual with certain health conditions.
The fact is, sodium is an important mineral that we need, especially when training. As per...
Sodium, Your Secret Weapon | T Nation
Studies in Canada at McGill and McMaster Universities have concluded that unless one has a specific and serious condition that would preclude him from taking in salt, then salt intake will produce no negative health problems, and could actually be health promoting. As a matter of fact, only 10% of hypertension cases have a known cause, and in almost all of these cases, the cause was either genetic or stress related.
...High-performance athletes should not avoid sodium. They should, in fact, ensure that they get adequate amounts of sodium every day to prevent negative metabolic consequences, and to promote maximum performance.
The article above go into greater depth in explaining the importance of sodium for athletes.
