Whether you use a bar, dumbells or a Smith machine, this is a fantastic achievement that anyone would be proud of.
Key things to remember:
Work your way up to it gradually by increasing weight when you're ready
Grab a friend to spot you incase you lose your form and to help with those few reps you struggle with at the end of the set
Warm up and stretch before attempting this exercise

“Was just gonna make this challenge but it has already been done. I just bought a BoFlex and benched 180 last week, last night I did the whole stack, 210 lbs! I know it is not like a "real" weight but I am happy non-the less. I have ordered an extra 100 lbs so hopefully I will get atleast 250 by the summer. PS I weigh about 178 but wanna get down to 170”
