I think I might know the answer to this, but I am not totally sure.

My character has a strength of 7 (-2) and a current proficiency bonus of (+2). I have a proficiency in Athletics.

Adding all this information together, should I add the Strength negative modifier to the proficiency bonus for a total skill check modifier of (+0)?
