There are three types of muscle contractions - isometric, concentric and eccentric. Eccentric contractions are likely to cause more severe #DOMS than other contractions.

This is page of muscle notes. It puts the process in a diagram form that makes it more applicable for learning the steps.

Muscle contraction and relaxation. Interdigitation of thick and thin filaments allows sarcomere contraction, which is best explained by the sliding filament model in which actin filaments slide along myosin filaments. During contraction, both sets of filaments retain their normal length, A bands remain unchanged in length, I bands shorten, and H zones are narrowed.

Diagram of muscle tissue.  I love this.  No wonder we are so strong!  Look at all those fibers packed in there!  I remember learning this in Anatomy and Physiology and nerding out :-)
