Overloading will do you no good at all. After a five day loading period you muscle content will be approaching saturation point. Continuing to load (4-5 doses a day) will not further increase your muscle creatine content and the majority of the ingested creatine will simply be excreted. This will place your kidneys under some stress. Also you will be wasting money. After a 5 day loading period, 1 dose a day is necessary to maintain your muscle creatine levels. You can increase this to 2 doses per day on workout days.
